How do grades influence, inspire, motivate, excite, and destroy us? Would you work just as hard on something if you knew you were not going to receive a grade? Why do we sometimes care more about our grades than about the material we are learning? Where does the pressure to have originate (internally, externally, peers, graduate schools, parents)?
If you are interested in talking about how grades inhibit, coexist with, or improve learning, come to hear a panel of students and professors share their insights, followed by open discussions in the Rector Atrium from Noon-1pm on Thursday, December 1st. Free pizza!!!
