Transcript of Rubrics: Great Idea!

Rubrics: Great Idea! Rubrics: Benefits for Students Helps students understand the final goal of the assignment
Enables students to concentrate their efforts on what is necessary
Assists with self-assessment and peer-assessment
Creates a fair and unbiased option Rubrics: How-To Create Rubrics: Benefits for Teachers Rubrics: Features Rubrics may contain three features:
Evaluation Criteria
List of guidelines
Quality Definitions
Detailed explanation of Evaluative Criteria
Scoring Strategy
Numerical Scale used when making judgements Rubrics: When Should We Use Them? We should use rubrics in situations where we want to evaluate and teach. We can set high expectations and assist the students with achieving them while referring to a clear set of criteria. (Andrade, 2005) Students will learn a lot more than just with a simple checklist. Look at previous examples of the assignment (or consider) and choose what makes them good and bad.
Begin to list the criteria and make a list of what would make it quality work.
Consider what makes the work quality and write the quality definitions (starting with the best and worst columns).
Show it to the students and ask them to help make it more clear. According to Reddy and Andrade, "If student interpretation is correct, then the goal of clarity has been met" (2010). (Reddy & Andrade, 2010) Rubrics: Suggestions for Use Be specific so the students
know exactly what is
expected. This will help
communicate to the students,
and cause less confusion. Find a way to provide feedback before the final product is due. Students want to do well, and it isn't helpful when we don't give them a chance to correct. Encourage self-assessment
in addition to peer-assessment. After working with the students to be efficient at self-assessing, they will develop a skill that will be beneficial for the rest of their lives. (Montgomery, 2000) Will provide feedback as well as grades (Reddy & Andrade, 2010)
Enables higher achievement and deeper learning (Reddy & Andrade, 2010) Helps teachers put the ideas in their heads down on paper (Montgomery, 2000)
Can teach and evaluate when used properly (especially when the students can help develop them) (Reddy & Andrade, 2010) "...Describe desirable qualities as well as common pitfalls in student work" (Andrade, 2005) It is often hard to keep all ideas in our heads as we are grading. Parents also want clear reasons regarding why their student received a specific grade. Rubrics can teach the students what makes a quality assignment as well as help us to communicate better to them. Rubrics will enable the students to quickly see the thoughts of the teacher. Without using rubrics, teachers sometimes feel that he/she must write much more. The students will eventually have a deeper understanding of the topic because they were challenged more. Once rubrics are completed, teachers can see common areas in which many students did not perform well. This will help teachers know what needs to be communicated better or reassessed. (Andrade, 2005) EXAMPLES E X A M P L E S "It is not just about evaluation anymore; it is about teaching. Teaching with rubrics is where it gets good" (Andrade, 2005). Rubrics enable teachers to establish criteria for evaluation and apply this criteria to the work of each student.

There are some rubrics saved to the site, but you can also use their templates to create your own. (Reddy & Andrade, 2010) Great things about this analytic rubric:
Easy to read
Student Evaluation column in addition to Teacher Evaluation column
Curricular aims are met
Easily understood by anyone (not just the teacher and student)
Shows maximum points for each category and how the points break down for each
Includes all three features of a rubric (Evaluation Criteria, Quality Definitions, Scoring Strategy)
Expectations are high and will be graded fairly (which is made obvious through details) Rubrics: A Closer Look at an Example This rubric would be used by a teacher and student while looking at a finished product. The teacher and student could be using this rubric after discussing a curricular aim centered around creating accurate and effective line graphs. Let's look a little closer.
