"WUaS plans to hire graduate student instructors from great universities who may be becoming professors, to teach overachieving, matriculated, WUaS students in sections in G+ group video Hangouts, for example, engaging the Conference Method (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Conference_Method_of_Teaching_and_Learning), in conjunction MIT OCW faculty in video (http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses/), and to do grading at WUaS as part of a conversation in learning. Such courses may engage other forms of grading, but that will partly be up to the head graduate student instructor in any given course."
WUaS plans to build on student assessment and grading practices at MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cambridge, Reed College, Haverford and Swarthmore, and online successes, particularly Udacity (http://blog.udacity.com/), etc., especially in terms of learning as conversation.
With all the wonderful potential of MOOCs, especially in terms of information technologies and scaling, some of which WUaS will engage, WUaS doesn't want to get rid of the teachers in the learning process.
