My new grading policy

This was my “Buddhism quote” on my iGoogle homepage today:

“Wise men don’t judge: they seek to understand.”

Pretty much sums up the ways I grade and the reasons I don’t like assigning grades. As a writer who insists on treating students like fellow writers, I don’t want to “judge” their work–I want to understand it.
