In the Bulletin’s advice column, Sage D’Vice addresses questions and concerns from readers while providing insightful and thoughtful advice. This issue, Sage D’Vice responds to a submission addressing a professor’s least favorite part of the job—grading. The response begins with a conversation about understanding what grading is, a look at how different assignments require different kinds of grading, and the reminder that a professor need only grade the assignments they assign. A lighthearted and fun discussion about the part of the job that consumes a significant amount of time (especially at the end of a semester), Sage D’Vice provides practical and thoughtful advice on what it means to grade smarter, not harder.
