|This webinar will focus on creating or adapting rubrics for classroom use. The session will emphasize:
- How to write criteria and performance level descriptions that assess student learning
- How to assess “following directions for the assignment” separately from learning
- How to involve students in using rubrics
Participants will learn how to write criteria and performance level descriptions that assess student learning. Just like the task itself, rubrics must match the learning outcomes they are intended to assess. Too often, criteria in rubrics examine surface level features of student performance or the requirements of an assignment. In contrast, effective rubrics employ criteria that look for qualities in student work that indicate the quality of student learning. The webinar will share principles for writing such effective rubrics and provide examples to critique. Participants will learn how to assess “following directions for the assignment” separately, for example with a checklist. Finally, participants will learn five strategies for involving students in using rubrics to support: shared learning targets, student self-reflection and self-assessment, teacher feedback, peer feedback, and student goal setting.
