2 2 What is a Rubric? A systematic approach for scoring student work consistently A systematic approach for scoring student work consistently Provides “rules” for evaluating quality Provides “rules” for evaluating quality

3 3 Rubrics: Why Use Them? Improves student performance by making expectations clear Improves student performance by making expectations clear Communicates the “what” and “how” Communicates the “what” and “how” Encourages student metacognition Encourages student metacognition Reduces teachers’ scoring time Reduces teachers’ scoring time Increases scoring consistency (when well designed) Increases scoring consistency (when well designed) Decreases “scoring drift” and scoring bias Decreases “scoring drift” and scoring bias Leads to fair assessment for ALL students Leads to fair assessment for ALL students

4 4 Scoring Constructed Response Holistic scoring – focuses on the overall content Holistic scoring – focuses on the overall content Analytic scoring – specific point allocation Analytic scoring – specific point allocation

5 5 Developing a Scoring Rubric Step 1: Step 1: –“Unpack” critical knowledge and skills (refer to objectives that assessment is aligned) Step 2: Step 2: –List Criteria (in first column) Step 3: Step 3: –Define Criteria (in second column)

6 6 Identify and define criteria for assessing students’ ability to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich

7 PBJ Rubric Criteria Description Ingredients PB, jelly, & 2 pieces of bread SpreadPB & jelly coverage on bread Ratio PB & jelly about equal Assembly Bread Alignment; PB & jelly on inside IntegrityBread appearance

8 Developing a Scoring Rubric Step 4: Step 4: –Determine points and weight for each criteria Step 5: Step 5: –vividly describe performance expectation across point levels

9 PBJ Rubric Criteria Description 3210 Sequence1. bread 2. PB or jelly 3. put bread together Correct sequence Incorrect sequence SpreadPB & jelly coverage on bread Both ingredients are crust to crust (ctc) Both ingredients almost ctc (<.5 inch from crust) Only one ingredient is ctc or almost ctc Both ingredients blobbed in middle-very little spread RatioPB & jelly ratio Approx. equal Slight difference Moderate difference Extreme difference AssemblyBread Alignment; PB & jelly on inside Aligned to bread shape & ingredients on inside Mostly aligned & ingredients on inside Aligned or mostly aligned, however, ingredients on outside Poor alignment & ingredients on outside Product Integrity Bread appearance No holes or tears 1 hole or tear 2-3 holes a/o tears 4+ holes a/o tears

10 RubiStar A free online site to assist in creating rubrics Intended for teachers who want to use rubrics, but do not have time to develop them from scratch.

11 Benefits Build on content specific templates Create original rubrics Customizable Examine existing teacher created rubrics Store your classroom rubrics Interactive design
