Easier, Faster, Fairer Grading with Gradescope

Tue, 2019-11-12 17:00
Bostock 039
West Campus

Join Learning Innovation and the Gradescope team to learn how to use Gradescope to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with grading exams and homework, while providing better and faster feedback to your students.

You will learn how to:

  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope,
  • Grade groups of answers at once,
  • Make rubric changes as you grade - changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency,
  • Write each comment only once - apply previously used comments with a click,
  • Create better rubrics to increase student learning,
  • Use 'assignment analytics' to gain insight into student learning.

Note: lunch will be provided for those able to join us in Bostock 039, but this workshop can also be attended virtually through Zoom videoconferencing. When you register, let us know how you plan to attend.

DVS Workshop: Research Data Management 101 + Tool Demonstrations

Thu, 2019-10-31 17:30
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Researchers work with lots of data both big and small, in many different formats and across various digital systems. The first hour of this workshop will introduce good digital data management practices and how they can be practically applied throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices cover pre-project planning, active workflow organization, documentation, storage and backup strategies, and optimizing your final "data package" to fulfill research quality and reproducibility requirements and facilitate and new research. The second hour of this workshop will offer a mini "tour" of research data management tools including GitLab, LabArchives, and Tropy. Participants will be able to attend two of these demonstrations in the time allotted. We will end with a share out about what you've learned and how you might apply the tool to your own work.
