Even how grades are generated, typically at the complete discretion of the professor, is all over the map. Some weight, some curve, some give extra credit, some inflate, some put outcomes over numeric values, some base evaluation off of a single exam, others weigh participation as heavily as course outcomes, and on and on. In other words, grades are different to almost everyone. Yet we all seem to buy into the representative nature of grading, ignoring the elephant in the room.
Join us every Friday to see how connectedness shows up in "real-world" stories and scenarios. Here are 5 articles, blogs, or other resources that illustrate the power of connectedness. Of course, we'll keep blogging away too. We hope you'll stop back by on Monday, to see our newest post. And don't forget to follow us on twitter (@IICEorg). Happy Friday!
