Welcome to our Classroom Wiki on Grading Systems around the globe

Please choose an area of interest and contribute to it.
Feel free to edit pages or create your own. Always clearly identify the source you have used.
Our classroom wiki should be a unique reflection of our cultural interests and experiences in the field of education.

Have fun!

blob[3]RATIONALE (making the teaching process visible) - Why are we using a Classroom Wiki?

1. Collaborative learning: 

As we all have individual interests and experiences which we bring into the group, we can draw on this rich resource together in order to create - very quickly -  a substantial library of educational topics relevant to us, e.g.

International summative assessment tools
Grading Systems (by country)

2. Wiki content creation as teaching tool and independent learning resource: 
Experiencing the creation of Wiki content as "reflective" learner will allow you to identify pitfalls  and avoid them when using this learning tool as future teacher with your own classes.

Be reflective, be critical: What could be improved? Are all sources quoted correctly? Would you set this Wiki task as a teacher? Would you write this "welcome page"? How could it be written better? What guidance is missing?

"One of the primary reasons to use wikis is because they help your students reach Bloom’s higher order skills – things like creating and evaluating. Additionally, wikis achieve many of Chickering and Ehrmann good teaching practices including cooperation between students, active learning, prompt feedback from peers, time on task, the articulation of high expectations, and support for diverse talents. Practically, we also think that wikis are a good tool to use because access and editing can be controlled by the instructor thus making a wiki public or private. Additionally, wikis are accessible online and include user friendly features that require little training. It’s likely your students will know exactly what to do!"
