Video: Grading on Packback

Dr. Carol Higham has been using Packback for a few semesters and created a unique way to grade her discussions. Since the Curiosity Score on Packback doesn’t correlate to a standard grading scale, Dr. Higham takes the mean Curiosity Score in her class and establishes that as the “C” for the course. At the beginning of the term, she establishes the “C” by taking the mean Curiosity Score from the previous semester.

Dr. Higham awards As and Bs based on deviation from the average curiosity score. As the semester progresses, she updates the grading scale to better reflect the level of her current course. In the video, Dr. Higham shares that the mean curiosity score on Packback increases throughout the term!
