Connections: Discussing "ungrading" in college classrooms

A growing number of American college professors are changing the way they grade students. In particular, some are engaging an evaluation method referred to as "ungrading."

We sit down with a local professor who decided to stop scoring papers this year and instead, write lengthy comments and meet individually with students. He's trying to change the power dynamics and the grading methods that he has come to believe are ineffective.

We discuss this new approach with our guests:
