The online writing course experience opens many opportunities to help students develop and improve their writing. But these opportunities fizzle if an instructor is faced with evaluating 2,000 words or more a week from every student. How do you create meaningful assignments and projects for students without creating an overwhelming amount of grading and assessment? This seminar will offer a pedagogical and philosophical approach to reasonable evaluation while providing specific assignments, grading strategies, and rubrics. I will also present ways of changing the overall course grading scheme to reflect the amount of online writing in a course. The audience members will learn:

  • How to change the weight of assignments for the online writing course
  • How to assess and grade specific writing assignments
