Event Overview
Schools are implementing new grading options. Is there an impact on institutional assessment and/or individual course design based on these new grading systems?

This session – which will include technology demonstrations – will explore the risks, rewards, and mechanics of grading technology. You will hear stories of what drove these presenters to explore autograder technology, how they implemented pilots and standards for measurement of success. You will also take a look at the future of autograding technology, both within the landscape and on individual campuses.

Session Outcomes:
 - Explore a variety of grading tools from a consumer perspective (not a vendor session).
 - Uncover mistakes and lessons learned from schools who have piloted some of the more popular tools.
 - Outline the potential problems/issues on campus that a grading tool might solve
