New Publication in the Journal of Chemical Education by Chemistry Faculty Member

Dr. Santiago Toledo (Assistant professor of Chemistry at SEU) and his collaborator Dr. Justin Dubas just published an article in the most recent issue of the Journal of Chemical Education titled, “A Learner-Centered Grading Method Focused on Reaching Proficiency with Course Learning Outcomes.” This work discusses an alternative form of thinking about grading to encourage students to focus on their mastery with the course learning outcomes. This proposed method couples the use of Marzano’s Taxonomy of learning and its cognitive levels to the feedback students receive.  This approach was implemented in general chemistry courses at SEU and it is now operational in some organic chemistry and other advanced level courses.  This work is a follow-up of earlier work by Dr. Toledo on using Marzano’s Taxonomy to draft student learning outcomes for chemistry courses.

The article’s DOI is: 10.1021/acs.jchemed.6b00651
