There's a Better Way to Grade
Outline of the grading system called “specifications” or “specs.” It is a one-level, uni-dimensional rubric where you grade all assignments and tests satisfactory/unsatisfactory, pass/fail. Students earn all of the points associated with the work, or none of them, depending on whether their work meets the particular specifications you lay out for it.
