I'll share Pascal Vallet's new newsletter because it exists, but I'm not a fan of the whole idea of email-only newsletters with subscription plans and no RSS feeds. Anyhow, in this post, he shares the wisdom that "not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted," which is why (I guess?) AI-assisted grading is a bad idea. "Perhaps," he writes, "there is a dimension of grading that is inherently bound to the educator's engagement with student work—an engagement that offers insights into the students' understanding, strengths, and potential areas for growth... grading should be seen as an integral process that enhances the educator's comprehension of student needs, rather than just a means to an end."
