Section 3: Rubrics

Section 3 will discuss rubrics as frameworks for assessing and evaluating evidence of student learning to increase the validity of assessments requiring subjective judgment while preserving reliability.

This section is designed to increase your ability to develop rubrics for assessing student learning. Assessment of student learning often requires going beyond objective measures into the realm of the instructor's professional expertise, and rubrics are a framework for applying that expertise in a mindful and consistent manner. You will be asked to construct a rubric for an important learning outcome in a course you teach.

Workbook Entry 1:
Open your workbook file that you have saved to your desktop and briefly describe what you already know about rubrics and what, if any, experience you have had using them in your assessment of student work.

If you are starting this module from this point, you will need to access the workbook outline that you will use throughout the module.

After completing this section in your worksheet, be sure to save the updated information you have added. In the upper left hand corner of your document window under "File," click once to show the pull down menu. Go to "Save" and click once. This will save your updated workbook file. All set? Then minimize the document and continue with this module.
