Anonymous grading is a method of grading where the grader does not know the identity of the student they are grading until all final grades have been assigned. It is designed to decrease the effects of unconscious positive or negative biases on your students’ grades. In this workshop, you will learn how to implement anonymous grading as a way to create a more inclusive, fair, and supportive classroom. We will discuss when and how to use anonymous grading to its best effect, how to advocate for anonymous grading on your next teaching team, and how to use bCourses to implement anonymous-grading.
This workshop is developed in partnership with the Unconscious Bias Project (unconsciousbiasproject.org).
