Creating and using meaningful rubrics
This course will help you use your own content knowledge and the wealth of information available about assessment to create, analyze, and critique rubrics.
Many rubrics are mere checklists — they may be useful, but they often don’t allow for much student growth. This course will help you use your own content knowledge and the wealth of information available about assessment to create, analyze, and critique rubrics.
You will design and discuss rubrics as a tool to foster self-assessment and reflection in students. Rubrics will create understanding not only of the content being taught, but also the performance standards students must meet and the quality of work they produce.
