Rubrics as Effective Learning and Assessment Tools Laura Baker - 1 views

  • measurable criteria that can be counted or marked as present or not present in the work that is being evaluated. 
  • This allows the rubric to be used as an ongoing dialog between the teacher and student and allows the student to know when each criterion has been met and then make improvements as needed. (Lockett, 2001)
  • Although allowing student involvement in creating rubrics is time consuming, by allowing students a voice in creating their own rubric, the students have more ownership over their own learning and evaluation.
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • will be easier for the students to understand due to the fact that the students are the ones supplying the language for the criteria
  • when there is a wide range of variation between quality work and work that is not yet proficient.
  • writing assignments, use of scientific inquiry, problem solving, performance based learning, and presentations
  • that teachers scoring the same set of papers using the same rubric have a correlation value beyond 0.80
  • Students should be given rubrics at the beginning of an assignment because rubrics not only are valuable to teachers because they help in more consistent grading, but are helpful to students as well. 
  • Holistic rubrics are quicker to use than analytical rubrics because holistic rubrics don’t break down the task.
  • better diagnostic information and provide students more feedback about how to make his or her work better
  • Analytical rubrics, on the other hand, break down the final project into parts
  • empowered to take more responsibility for their own learning.

  • “Today’s young people are using a range of digital tools to compose and create in new and exciting ways. It is a game-changing moment for teachers of writing. The very notion of what it means to write is shifting, and educators are faced with adapting their teaching practices to integrate new technologies while redefining writing and learning for the 21st century.”
  • Docs provide support for collaboration in real time so students and teachers can have a virtual mini-conference about the work in front of them from any location if the timing is right.
  • quickly pinpoint the suggested revision
    • Teresa Dobler
      The feedback draws attention right to the point that needs to be corrected. In other systems, I have seen all the feedback at the beginning or end, which makes it more difficult for students to make corrections. This is also more formative than an overall rubric, where again students have to hunt through for where the corrections are actually needed. The more work students need to do to correct, the less likely they are to do so.

Collaborative annotation of images | speakingimage - 0 views

    An interactive tool for group annotations of images - great for art, maps, anatomy, diagrams and more. Allows embedded wiki pages linked to points within the image, advanced selection and highlighting tools, links to video within the image.
    This is a very robust tool, when it works. Early versions were not capable of handling too many people and the group function broke down. However subsequent communication with the authors of this software revealed they had invested quite a bit of effort in the new beta to overcome some of the early issues. I want to test this for my class.

  • Traditional course management systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, or WebCT provide integrated solutions for faculty to post course content, assignments, and student grades.
  • They are often document-centered, allowing instructors to post PowerPoint slides, Word and PDF files, and other course content for students to access. In addition, many course management systems allow students to log in to check grades, submit assignments, or take exams electronically. The responsibility lies with the instructor to create the course content for students to download or access.
