b'I throw out the assignment with the lowest grade. And I give two exams: the highest grade is counted for 35 percent of the final grade; the lower one counts 25 percent. This builds in redemption. If students bomb the first exam, they can redeem themselves. Otherwise they will just give up. Professor,Finance, Accounting, and Real EstateI ask students to make up questions for the exam, so they feel part of the process. Professor,MicrobiologyI balance workload by giving more reading in the first third of the semester than in the last third. I tell the students that I am doing this because I am aware of the fact that they will have accumulated work and prelims from other classes. This is a signal to students that I am aware of their needs. Professor,Near Eastern StudiesHelping Students Balance Stress62'
