Elisabeth Gruner is a Professor of English at the University of Richmond, Virginia, United States of America. In her article, I no longer grade my students’ work – and I wish I had stopped sooner, she explains why she chose not to grade students work. Instead, Gruner decided on a better way and provided feedback instead.  "I hate grading. I love teaching, though, and giving students feedback is teaching. I am happy to do it" Gruner says.
