On this episode we discuss two grading practices that are used in many classroom but are certainly possible issues when it comes to grade equity. Show Notes: We start this question with the goofy question. Have you been caught up in the 2022 Wordle wave? Any other puzzle games popular with your family, friends or students? Joining us from Texas is Lee Ferguson: No but I have played Sweardle 🤣🤣 Joining us from Illinois is Amy Kelly: I have to be honest, I hadn’t heard of Wordle until about a week ago. As far as puzzle games…and I am not sure if this counts, but I love my Rubik’s cube! Joining us from Ohio is Jon Darkow: http://worldle.teuteuf.fr Aaron: I have been playing Heardle (name that tune style game) and my wife plays Semantle (Guess the right word base on contextual similarity) Questions We Discuss: - Setting the baseline, does your school have any grading policies in place about zeros or group grades? - Considering the policies, do you ever record or want to record zeros or group grades in your gradebook? How do you feel about these grading practices? - Are there any other grading policies or practices that you struggle with in terms of fairness to students?
