Understanding Rubrics by Heidi Goodrich Andrade Understanding Rubrics by Heidi Goodrich Andrade Authentic assessments tend to use rubrics to describe student achievement. At last, here’s clarity on the term. Every time I introduce rubrics to a group of teachers the reaction is the same — instant appeal (“Yes, this is what I need!”) What Is a Rubric? A rubric is a scoring tool that lists the criteria for a piece of work, or “what counts” (for example, purpose, organization, details, voice, and mechanics are often what count in a piece of writing); it also articulates gradations of quality for each criterion, from excellent to poor. The example in Figure 1 (adapted from Perkins et al 1994) lists the criteria and gradations of quality for verbal, written, or graphic reports on student inventions — for instance, inventions designed to ease the Westward journey for 19th century pioneers for instance, or to solve a local environmental problem, or to represent an imaginary culture and its inhabitants, or anything else students might invent.

Rubrics Rubrics Descriptors Why Include Levels of Performance? Analytic Versus Holistic Rubrics How Many Levels of Performance Should I Include in my Rubric? Rubric: A scoring scale used to assess student performance along a task-specific set of criteria Authentic assessments typically are criterion-referenced measures. Research Rubric As in the above example, a rubric is comprised of two components: criteria and levels of performance. For each criterion, the evaluator applying the rubric can determine to what degree the student has met the criterion, i.e., the level of performance. Finally, the rubric above contains a mechanism for assigning a score to each project. The above rubric includes another common, but not a necessary, component of rubrics -- descriptors. Many rubrics do not contain descriptors, just the criteria and labels for the different levels of performance. It is not easy to write good descriptors for each level and each criterion. So, when might you use a holistic rubric? or

De eduteka: Assessment Professional Development Guide An overview of the Edutopia professional development guide for understanding the many ways to assess student learning in the classroom. The assessment professional development guide is meant for use either after completion of the project-based learning professional development guide or with participants who are familiar with project-based learning. The module is designed for a two to three hour class or session, divided into two parts. Part one is a guided process, designed to give participants a brief introduction to comprehensive assessment. It answers the questions "Why Is Assessment Important?", "What are Some Types of Assessment"? Part two assigns readings and activities for experiential, project-based learning about assessment. In Eeva Reeder's class, students must develop a site plan and a written proposal. This guide was designed to address many of the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS), established by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).

The role of assessment in teaching happens to be a hot issue in education today. Student Performance and Assessment Student performances can be defined as targeted tasks that lead to a product or overall learning outcome. What are Rubrics? Rubrics are performance-based assessments that evaluate student performance on any given task or set of tasks that ultimately leads to a final product, or learning outcome. Rating scales can be either holistic or analytical. Holistic scoring is more global and does little to separate the tasks in any given product, but rather views the final product as a set of interrelated tasks contributing to the whole. Analytic scoring breaks down the objective or final product into component parts and each part is scored independently. An example of a holistic scale is as follows: 1. 2. 3.

Matriz de Valoración (Rúbricas - Rubrics en inglés) ¿QUÉ SON LAS RÚBRICAS? Una Matriz de Valoración (Rúbrica – Rubric, en inglés [1]) es un instrumento que facilita la evaluación del desempeño de los estudiantes, especialmente, en temas complejos, imprecisos o subjetivos. Este instrumento podría describirse como una matriz de criterios específicos que permiten asignar u otorgar un valor (valorar), basándose en una escala de niveles de desempeño y un listado de aspectos que evidencian el aprendizaje, los conocimientos y/o las competencias alcanzadas por el estudiante en un tema particular. Le invitamos a conocer el esquema básico de una Rubrica y algunos ejemplos de Rúbricas. Esquema de una Rúbrica De acuerdo con la definición antes expuesta, una Matriz de Valoración o Rúbrica sirve para establecer o consultar cómo va el proceso de aprendizaje del estudiante.

Feeding America Feeding America: The Historic American Cookbook Project The Project The Feeding America project has created an online collection of some of the most important and influential American cookbooks from the late 18th to early 20th century. The digital archive includes page images of 76 cookbooks from the MSU Library's collection as well as searchable full-text transcriptions. This site also features a glossary of cookery terms and multidimensional images of antique cooking implements from the collections of the MSU Museum. The Feeding America online collection hopes to highlight an important part of America's cultural heritage for teachers, students, researchers investigating American social history, professional chefs, and lifelong learners of all ages. Feeding America was made possible with funds from a 2001 IMLS National Leadership Grant. To learn more Information about the project please select one of the following: Top of the Page

Assessment Resource Centre Criteria and outcome-based assessment The use of criteria in assessment is associated with an outcome-based approach to curriculum design. In an outcome-based curriculum, the design of learning, teaching and assessment tasks is guided by a set of intended learning outcomes. Criteria and rubrics A rubric is a statement of criteria that specifies aspects of performance and the level or standard that students are expected to demonstrate in the assessment. Choosing between analytic and holistic rubrics Analytic rubrics and holistic rubrics are the two common types of rubric. Please check out more information about rubrics from other resource references. Reflective Writing from a Student Team on a Criteria-referenced Assessment Tool-Kit

Otras paradojas de la Evaluación Educativa El discurso pedagógico muestra cierta unanimidad sobre la necesidad de “Evaluar para conocer y mejorar”, pero ¿Qué sucede con las prácticas evaluativas? ¿Son rutinarias? ¿Se evalúa el espíritu crítico? Las siguientes reflexiones de M A Santos Guerra, pensadas para el contexto universitario, sirven para ayudar a nuestras reflexiones. Aunque se teoriza sobre la importancia de la evaluación para la mejora del proceso de enseñanza, lo cierto es que se repiten de forma casi mecánica las prácticas sobre evaluación. Resulta chocante la minuciosidad de las repeticiones de las pautas de evaluación que utilizan los profesores. Los estudiantes suelen predecir con bastante exactitud cuál va a ser el tipo de evaluación que va a realizar el profesor. Los profesores rutinizan con frecuencia sus formas de evaluar. Hay prácticas que deberían conducir, lógicamente, a una revisión de los criterios que las inspiran, pero pocas veces se produce este mecanismo inteligente. Paradoja Autor Universidad de Málaga.
