Last quarter I stole someone's idea to replace exams with not-tests, so students could share their understanding of course material any way they wanted. It was amazing and honestly made grading fun!! Had to share some of their creative work (with permission). I got original art:
Original songs:
And even ghost stories!
Highly, highly recommended!!
A couple of folks have asked about the prompt for this assignment, so here it is. I introduced not-tests in writing on Canvas and in a synchronous class - live discussion seemed to spur ideas! I used a rubric largely borrowed from the amazing @KaneLabUL for sci comm projects.
And here's the rubric - I borrowed heavily from @KaneLabUL for this!! It was simple and I was able to give lots of feedback because it really took no time to grade these - they were too fun!
