Transcript of Rubrics

Rubrics Alyssa MacDonald A method for assessing students Learning Objectives Fellow teachers will understand the purpose of rubrics and why they are utilized.
Know the difference between holistic and analytic rubrics.
Have an understanding of how to create rubrics.
What is a rubric? "A rubric is a scoring guide that seeks to evaluate a student’s performance based on the sum of a full range of criteria rather than a single numerical score " (Teachervision 1) A rubric is a clear working guide for parents, students and teachers. it allows students to clearly understand what is expected of them in an assignment
Points out which aspects a teacher will be specifically looking for formal definition: What types assignments can a rubric be used for? Projects Tests Daily Assignments Why use a Rubric?
Aids teachers by taking the subjectivity out of grading Guide Avoiding Subjectivity
Avoiding the Santa Clause Grading System/Grinch Grading System shows students exactly what they lost points on in order to help them improve on the next assignment. Four Types of Rubrics Holistic Analytic "Holistic rubrics assess student work as a whole" "Analytic rubrics identify and assess components of a finished product.” Holistic Rubric Analytic Rubric Each separate criteria is judged on a descriptive scale Holistic Rubric Example: *Usually used when some mistakes can be tolerated *Quicker Process *Less Specific *The teacher is required to read through the student product or performance only once * scoring process is slower * Students receive specific feedback on their performance in each of the criteria areas Analytic Rubric Example Steps to making a rubric Vs. Advantages
Disadvantages Advantages Disadvantages How do you know which type of rubric to use?
• Use a holistic rubric when:
o "You want a quick snapshot of achievement."
o "A single dimension is adequate to define quality." • Use an analytic rubric when:
o You want to see relative strengths and weaknesses.
o You want detailed feedback.
o You want to assess complicated skills or performance.
o You want students to self-assess their understanding or performance.
Step 1:
Evaluate Learning Objectives

Step 2: What you do and do not want to see, as well as common mistakes you do not want to see.

Step 3: Brainstorm characteristics that describe above average and below average performances Step 4a: write thorough narrative descriptions for excellent work and poor work. Describe the highest and lowest levels of performance.

Step 4b: For analytic rubrics, write thorough narrative descriptions for excellent work and poor work for each individual attribute. holistic rubrics analytic rubrics Step 5a: For holistic rubrics, complete the rubric by describing other levels on the continuum that ranges from excellent to poor work for the collective attributes.
Step 5b: For analytic rubrics, complete the rubric by describing other levels on the continuum that ranges from excellent to poor work for each attribute.
Step 6: Collect samples of student work that exemplify each level. BENCHMARKS!
Step 7: REVISE and REFLECt (Metler C. 2) Advantages of Rubrics Clarification Feedback Motivation Flexible in many grades and contexts Consistency Disadvantages overwhelming Restrict learning process Time consuming for teacher (Moskal 1) (Wilson 113) (Moskal 1) (Mertler 1) (Schreyer Institute) (Schreyer Institute)

(Schreyer Institute)

Development Tool (Teachervision 1) General vs. Task Specfic Contains criteria that is general among tasks Contains criteria that is unique to a specific task Use general rubrics when students are not all doing the same task Use task specific rubrics when you want a strong consistency in scoring (Schreyer Institute) (Teachervision 1)
