You can be sure academics will respond, as one commenter already has, that grading is an integral part of teaching. But there comes a point, as it did for me when I taught, when grading comes to be measured in vertical feet, and represents a burden, not an opportunity. Anyhow, this pilot, launched by Kentucky’s community colleges this fall, may represent the thin edge of the wedge. If teaching is indeed separated from evaluation, as I have been projecting for some time, then credentialing will, naturally, follow the evaluators. What will universities do then, when they no longer have a monopoly on credentials?
