  5. 5. What can a well constructed rubric can do for instructors and students?
  6. 6. To share or not to share?
  7. 7. IF category – Visual Communication, Technology, and Society Learning Outcome # 3 Demonstrate an understanding of visual communication, appropriateness, and cultural considerations in the development and adaptation of technologies.
  8. 8. The cup…(or glass, mug, canteen,…)
  9. 9. The assignment: You have 90 seconds to provide a written description of your vessel that: Demonstrates your ability to observe and relay to someone else your understanding of the cup’s contents, exterior and interior properties, size, shape, and use.
  10. 10. - Did you understand the assignment? - Were you able to jump right in? - Did you know what to focus on? - Were you comfortable with the assignment and the instructions?
  11. 11. - What are possible ways to grade an assignment like this? - Is there a way for the instructor to ensure equitable grading? - If you were brought in to assess this assignment, how would you distinguish between someone who meets the criteria (3), someone who exceeds the criteria (4), someone who nears meeting the criteria (2), and someone who does not meet (1) - What grade do you think you should get on a scoring basis of 1-4 with 4 being the highest grade?
  12. 12. Goals for the rubric: Any colleague should be able to assess a learning outcome with the same outcome as the instructor. Sets clear guidelines and expectations for the assignment. Use 3-6 criteria and make sure they are measurable – there needs to be evidence that students met the standard.
  13. 13. A draft rubric for the cup assignment. What grade did you get based on this? Would you have approached it differently if you had this first? If you were allowed to redo this a second time, would it be beneficial? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz_RERGDYutDck9oTGVMcC01SEk/view?usp=sharing
  14. 14. I have found these practices to increase student confidence, understanding, and in turn, their grade. Allow students to redo assignments if they are handed in on time. Give students the rubric at the same time as the assignment. Follow a similar format for a group of assignments throughout the semester that use the same rubric. For most students, later assignments show growth and higher achievement. If appropriate, have students engage in the creation of the rubric using a discussion board (or other means). What do they think would be important in an assignment based on the learning outcome. Let them grade sample assignments using the rubric and follow with discussion.
