ACUE Course Reader

ACUE readers are assigned to read and score course takers’ “Practice and Reflect” reflection assignments. They review work with the assignment rubric and score the reflection as either “Complete” (badge earned) or “Incomplete” (badge deferred, pending a resubmission and subsequent “Complete” score).

For the reflections, course takers have the option to either “Implement” or “Plan to Implement” and are encouraged to “Implement” if they are currently teaching a class.
