Creating rubrics worksheet

  1. 1. Creating Rubrics Worksheet
  2. 2. TOP PAGE Rubric Design A rubric is a scoring tool that describes the specific criteria on which student assignments will  be assessed. This same rubric can be used across multiple sections of a course to assess student  artifacts for the purpose of course assessment. Three essential components of the assignment are  identified in a rubric:     1. Assignment criteria    2. Achievement levels for each assignment criterion (e.g. exemplary, acceptable, unacceptable)    3. Description of each achievement level for each assignment criterion      2. Achievement Levels Assignment Criteria 1. Assignment Criteria Exemplary up to xx points Satisfactory up to x points description of criterion 1 description of exemplary accomplishment on criterion 1 description of satisfactory accomplishment on criterion 1 x points xx points description of criterion 2 description of exemplary accomplishment on criterion 2 description of satisfactory accomplishment on criterion 2 xx points description of criterion 3 description of exemplary accomplishment on criterion 3 did not meet criterion 1 0 points did not meet criterion 2 0 points description of satisfactory did not meet accomplishment on criterion 3 criterion 2 0 points xx points x points 3. Achievement Level Description 1  x points No Credit 0 points
  3. 3. STEP 1: Define the assignment criteria   describe in concrete terms to specific tasks/student performance that will be assessed   look to the assignment sheet for these tasks                  STEP 2: Define the levels of achievement for each criteria   e.g. Exemplary, Satisfactory, No Credit   CAUTION: define levels carefully; what’s the difference between “fair” and “good”   include maximum point value for each level   consider the number of categories required to determine the range of performance quality,  but in general use a 3‐point to 7‐point scale                  STEP 3: Write the description of each achievement level for each criterion    2  define in concrete terms the kind of performance required to achieve that level  include maximum point value for each criterion achievement level

Assignment Criteria xx points x points 0 points xx points x points 0 points x points xx points 0 points xx points x points 0 points xx points 3. Achievement Level Description 3  x points 0 points
  5. 5. Assignment Example with Rubric From an Art History Course Homework Assignment 1: Symbols, Heroes, & Rituals Paper Due at the beginning of class Total possible points: 50 One of the great pleasures – and challenges – of studying works of art is to interpret what they say about the values held by the originating culture. In any period, values are expressed through a culture’s symbols, heroes, and rituals. This semester we will consider the symbols, heroes, and rituals of each culture we study and discuss what these concepts say about the culture’s values. SYMBOLS: Words, gestures, pictures, or objects that carry a particular meaning only recognized as such by those who share the culture HEROES: Persons, alive or dead, real or imaginary, who possess characteristics that are highly prized in a culture and thus serve as models for behavior RITUALS: Collective activities, technically superfluous to reaching desired ends, but which within a culture are considered socially essential The majority of the images we study this semester will reference a culture’s symbols, heroes, and/or rituals. At times we’ll see all three concepts in the same image! Before looking for these concepts in the very old images we’ll study this semester, you have an opportunity to identify them in imagery of our current era. Assignment Requirements: 1. Watch TV or YouTube clips, look at images from the movies, look through newspapers and magazines, look at the billboards along the roads and identify 2 (two) examples of American symbols, 2 (two) examples of American heroes, and 2 (two) examples of rituals that are meaningful. 2. Write a brief synopsis of the 6 (six) examples that includes the following information: 1. Identify the image – what product it advertises, what person it depicts, etc. – and explain what’s going on 2. Associate the image with one concept (symbols, heroes, or rituals) 3. In three to four sentences each, explain how the image/person/etc. expresses the concept and what the image says about what our culture values 3. This assignment is due at the beginning of class. You may submit it via the LMS drop box in or in hardcopy. Remember that I will only accept word‐processed papers … handwritten documents are simply not acceptable. Multi‐page papers must be stapled together … folded edges or paper clips just won’t do! 4 
  6. 6. Homework Assignment 1 Grading Rubric Criterion Exemplary up to Satisfactory up to 50 points 35 points Below Expectations up No Credit 0 points to 20 points Identified/explained image Identified 6 images; Identified 3‐5 images Identified 1‐2 images Did not identify images 0 points 4 points 10 points 7 points Accurately associated Each image (6) was image with concept carefully and accurately associated with a concept 10 points 3‐5 images were accurately associated with a concept 1‐2 images were accurately associated with a concept Images were not accurately associated with a concept 7 points 4 points 0 points Explained how image expresses the concept Explanations with each image (6) clearly and convincingly expressed the concept 10 points Explanations with images (3‐5) were questionable 7 points Explanations with images (1‐2) did not fit Explanations (6) about cultural values were clear and convincing Explanations (3‐5) about cultural values were ambiguous Explanations (1‐2) about cultural values were unconvincing 20 points 14 points Explained what the image says about what our culture values 5  4 points Did not provide explanations with images 0 points Did not provide explanations about cultural values 8 points 0 points
