Date:
Wednesday, January 15th 2014
Start Time:
1:00 PM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
105 TILT Building
Description:
Are students producing work that meets your expectations? Do some students miss the point of an assignment and turn in something different? Are they baffled by their grade? If so, they may be unclear about your expectations and a rubric may be the solution. Rubrics are a tool to communicate and measure pre-defined grading criteria. Developing a rubric and sharing it with students ahead of time can result in student work better aligned with the assignment criteria and make the feedback process less subjective, especially if TA's are grading assignments. You will leave the workshop with sample rubrics as well as starting one of your own. **This is a working session, please bring an assignment you would like to work on.**
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty who are interested in learning how to write a rubric or ensuring assignments are graded using consistent criteria.
