Grading the Personal: A Framework for Assessing Storytelling Projects

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Storytelling projects are an effective way of bringing student experiences and their complex identities into the classroom, making students co-creators of course content and learning. However, an important question arises when grading these projects: How do we evaluate such work objectively, fairly, and respectfully, when these assignments can be subjective and personal in nature? This roundtable gives attendees an opportunity to share unique challenges and effective practices for assigning and assessing such work. We will generate resources, rubrics, and guidelines for a new framework for assessing storytelling projects that is effective and sensitive to our diverse student body.

Note from the Conference Team: Engage With Small(er) Groups in Roundtable Sessions 
  • Roundtable Discussions are intended to provide an opportunity for interactions in a smaller group setting. To accomplish the goal of more focused and personal conversations, we recommend presenters limit attendance for roundtable discussions to 30 participants. 
  • If you are unable to join a roundtable because it has reached the maximum number of participants, we encourage you to check-out one or more of the on-demand sessions (available throughout the conference) or a Q&A session scheduled for the same time from Wednesday to Friday.
