For this reason, quick feedback on homework is essential.
Reviewing homework in class using a trade and grade strategy, in which students exchange papers and grade each other's assignments, cuts down on teacher grading and allows students to quickly get feedback on their work.
After sharing your concerns, your mentor teacher suggests something to solve your problems: Use a grading rubric to assess all homework assignments.
You agree to give it a shot and start researching homework rubrics.
The two most common criteria to include on a homework rubric are completeness of the assignment and accuracy of the answers.
When writing criteria for accuracy of answers using a table format, it is better to use a fraction or a percentage rather than a specific number of correct answers to keep the rubric more general.Teachers can then collect the already graded work and use the rubric to assign a score.To help keep grades private, have students fold down their papers so their names are not visible, and have them trade multiple times.Generally, the point of homework is to give students extra practice.However, if students complete homework incorrectly and do not realize it, they will usually keep making the same mistakes, which does not help them learn the material.You aren't even sure if you should grade homework for accuracy since some students can get help from their parents and others can't.You also don't like that each homework assignment has a different point value due to the number of questions, which can make some assignments more heavily weighted than others in your grade book.One of the issues discussed in our monthly new teachers meeting was having so much homework to grade.If accuracy is an element of the rubric, then the teacher will still need to grade the assignment thoroughly, which does not reduce teacher workload.As a member, you'll also get unlimited access to over 79,000 lessons in math, English, science, history, and more.Plus, get practice tests, quizzes, and personalized coaching to help you succeed.
