Reading this collection of articles is like having a great discussion with professors who have actively researched and grappled with the practice of grading. The articles provide multiple examples of how to grade, and how to use the grades on tests, quizzes, and assignments. Of course, the articles don't prescribe any one solution to grading and testing either, but offer vignettes about what worked for instructors in different situations.

I've been teaching at the college level for over twenty years, and I found some new ideas. I disagreed with a few points made, but also realized that others may have very different teaching positions than do I. Chapter Four would be especially helpful to new faculty, who are often so hesitant about the confrontations with students about their grades.

This was the first book that I have read "cover-to-cover" electronically, and I liked the format. This is something that I will definitely put on the recommended reading list for the new hires at my college - they can read it on a Sunday afternoon and implement some of the ideas the next week.

This book, which is a collection of short articles, feels like it was written for the concerns and issues that my colleagues and I tackle in the process of trying to do excellent work in our teaching. I found the book easy to read and filled with practical ideas that address problems such as getting students to read, grading large amounts of papers, increasing writing skills in students, and having difficult discussions around grades. This book may be helpful to both new faculty members and those who are a bit more seasoned. I found some good ideas that I wish to implement. While not all of the chapters may be applicable to one's subject area, most of the ideas and/or analyses of research findings can be applied across disciplines. Many faculty do not study adult education and a book such as this is very useful.

This book uses a fascinating "speed dating" approach to introduce you to many innovative and effective grading strategies that you may not have met before, but might end up "falling in love with" and using for the rest of your academic life! It is a collection of short articles written by faculty for faculty showcasing grading techniques that can be used to enhance student learning, save time in the grading process, and generate classroom data that can inform and improve teaching practices. The articles are timely (over 50% were published in the last five years), practical (loaded with "how to" suggestions as well as data collection models), and truly motivational!
