Abstract

Grade-risk provides a powerful ally in establishing relevance between course content and the lives of students. As used in this article, grade-risk refers to the potential for the loss of points on examinations, quizzes, etc. This article describes the rationale and feasibility associated with the introduction of a student-centered grade insurance project that provides some measure of protection against grade-risk. The project engages students on multiple levels and in various capacities resulting in a significantly enriched learning experience. The authors include examples employed in their own classroom in demonstrating the feasibility and validity of grade insurance as a learning tool.
