Grading subjective formative assessments
I'm interested in hearing about teachers' various approaches to grading both formative and summative assessments. I'm particularly interested to hear about how teachers approach grading subjective written responses. I can easily determine if a student has met a learning goal or not, but assigning a numerical grade to that feels arbitrary sometimes. I use rubrics with longer written pieces, but I find that creating a rubric for the short formative assessments is not always practical as these are sometimes created on the spot in response to my students' success with a particular lesson. Thoughts?
