Pseudo-Ungraded Calculus Exams

Abstract

Proponents of ungrading identify many of the usual problems with traditional assessment, and further argue that all coursework should receive meaningful instructor feedback, be supplemented with student self-reflection, and assessed by the students themselves. I will discuss an experience integrating some of these ideas into an exam structure for Calculus I and linear algebra students in Fall 2021, particularly as a way of continuing to do authentic assessment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
