Grading is Painful: How Digitisation and Artificial Intelligence can enable assessment in maths
Registrations close: 5 June
Target Audience: Teachers of Year 7 to 12, although anyone is welcome!
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is proposed to make our teaching role easier, using big data to provide deeper insights into learning. But how does this work? Grading should provide actionable feedback to both students and teachers to help students learn and help teachers pace and direct instruction. However, grading is painful, consistency is hard, providing good feedback takes time, and there are the logistics, compounded especially in a remote learning environment.
This session will explore an example of how AI and digitisation can improve grading and assessment in mathematics. We will explore how to achieve a time-saving, consistent approach to feedback in the grading process using Turnitin’s Gradescope. Toby Trewin, will share Hale School’s piloting of the solution. Gradescope is free for all schools for 2020, find out more here: www.gradescope.com.
