Structure opportunities for students to reflect on and improve their performance

The way we grade should motivate students to achieve academic success, support a growth mindset, and give students opportunities for redemption (Feldman, 2018). Equitable grading means that we want students to be intrinsically motivated to learn, so our goal should be to help them focus on learning rather than on grades. Providing opportunities for them to reflect on and improve their performance is how we build students’ self-regulation skills and sense of self-efficacy.
