Using Assessment and Grades to Promote Generation Z's Learning

Generation Z has arrived and is in your classroom! This generation believes that grades and learning matter. However, this generation is also experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness—and therein lies a challenge. How do we uphold disciplinary standards and at the same time help these students succeed? How do we help students become “more comfortable” with thinking under pressure, struggling to make sense of concepts, and taking risks that lead to learning?

Generation Z is driven by different motivations, characteristics, and concerns than previous generations—and understanding their mindset and goals can help us make sense of how to educate them. Join your colleagues to learn more about Generation Z—and find out about specific assessment and grading practices that are helping this generation move forward.
