Math Grading Codes

One of the most time consuming parts of being a math teacher is giving student feedback that is constructive and immediate so that they can fix their errors.  It can become a lengthy process to give immediate feedback to every student that does not require a lengthy description.  One of the ways I have learned to combat that is through creating a math grading code.  This grading code is a list of 16 shorthand ways to provide immediate feedback to students on common mathematical errors.  

You can use the codes to:

  • Give immediate feedback for independent practice in class
  • Give feedback for homework problems without having to grade every problem
  • Allow students to give each other simple, direct feedback when doing peer grading
