1 Assessment: Creating and Using Rubrics

2 Workshop Goals Review rubrics and parts of rubrics Use your assignment to create a rubric scale & dimension Peer review your rubric dimension

3 Grading & Rubrics What purpose do grades serve? Why is grading a challenge? What are some ways to make grading more efficient? Mr. D

4 Do you need a rubric? Examine the handout. Check any items with which you agree.

5 What is a rubric? A rubric is a scoring tool that lays out the specific explanations for an assignment (Stevens & Levi, 2013). Have you used rubrics before? What has your experience with rubrics been? Brief discussion

6 Rubric Example

7 Parts of a Rubric Four Basic Parts Task description Scale (levels of achievement) Dimensions (breakdown of skills/knowledge) Level of performance (feedback)

8 Task Description Most rubrics will contain both a descriptive title and a task description. Use descriptions from your syllabus and assignment sheets for consistency. Remember to consider the principles of assessment design when including your task descriptions Clearly state goals and outcomes Match your assessment to what you teach

9 Scale Describes how well or how poorly any given task has been performed. Terms should be considerate, yet clear Mastery, partial mastery, progressing, developing, and emerging provide more positive, active verb descriptions of what is expected

10 Scale Other scale ratings High level, middle level, and beginning level (non- judgmental) Distinguished, proficient, intermediate, novice Accomplished, average, developing, beginning

11 Scale How many levels should I include? The more levels you include, the more difficult it is to differentiate among them & explain precisely why one student’s work falls into the scale level it does. More specific levels make the task clearer for the student, and reduce the time needed for detailed grading. Stevens & Levi suggest 3-5

12 Other scaling options Holistic Rubrics Contain a description of the highest level of performance expected for each dimension. There is room for scoring and description The evaluator usually provides one overall score for students.

13 Holistic Rubric

14 Dimensions These are the all encompassing categories for the rubric. Contain at least the highest level of performance Additional levels of performance can be described in the dimensions The more specific criteria you provide, the more helpful information and feedback your students will have both before and after the assignment.

15 Examine your assignment Outline the elements or critical aspects of your assignment Choose one dimension for your assignment Create an evaluative range Consider using a developmental range to encourage students and provide feedback Add descriptors that qualify each level of performance Use objective indicators for each of these categories Assign a numerical value to each level

16 Share your rubric It’s important to get feedback about your rubric. With a partner, explain your assignment, and share the rubric you have created. Provide feedback about what is clear and unclear with your partner. For rubrics you use in class, consider sharing them with students.

17 Tips for Designing Rubrics Use parallel language Use student friendly language Share your rubric with your students Don’t use too many columns Don’t reinvent the rubric– common rubrics and templates are out there Rely on descriptive language (Miller, 2012)

18 Why use rubrics? Consistency of assessment from student-to-student Saves time in grading Provides timely, effective feedback Promotes student learning in a sustainable way Clarifies components of assignments for both students and future teachers Promotes reflection and refinement of teaching skills through analysis of results

19 Why use rubrics? Rubrics also help students Understand expectations for assignments Become more aware of their learning process and progress Improve work through timely and detailed feedback

20 Using rubrics How can you see yourself using a rubric?
