Judge students’ participation along multiple dimensions, rather than prioritizing one dimension like accurate execution of procedures, to make assignments more accessible and encourage well-rounded engagement.

  • Make it clear to students that there are many different dimensions along which they can succeed.
    • For instance, reward students for using different problem-solving methods, asking questions, expressing or synthesizing ideas, or facilitating discussion.
  • This can be particularly helpful in promoting equitable group work as more students are likely to feel as though they have something to contribute.
