About the Episode

About the Episode: 

In this episode, Jamie and Timothy dive into the fascinating world of decision fatigue and its impact on grading practices in higher education. Drawing from a study conducted at the University of Michigan, which analyzed over 30 million grading records, Jamie and Timothy discuss how individuals with last names lower in alphabetical order tend to receive worse grades due to decision fatigue among graders. They explore various causes of decision fatigue and its effects on grading outcomes, shedding light on biases such as anchoring bias and sequential grading biases. Furthermore, they examine potential solutions to mitigate decision fatigue, including randomization techniques and reducing class sizes. Join in the conversation to share valuable insights into the challenges of grading practices and the importance of designing equitable systems in education.
