Rubric-Revisionist - To Risk, Perchance to Learn - 1 views

  •  
    "I agree that a checklist approach, based on steps and acquisition of factual knowledge can inhibit intuition and creative expression of learning.  Yet rubrics that focus on depth of skills to build critical thinking can allow the flexibility necessary to create indwelling.  Admittedly, I've used both.  And I do think that a scaffold approach, one which guides students from a prescriptive structure to one that engenders more internally driven analysis can work.  The key, as we discussed in our twitter discussion, is to design the rubric to guide rather than prescribe and use it to have conversations with students about their process.  Because I value experiential learning, I also value rubric-revision.  A good rubric is one that changes each and every time it is used-- possibly during the process.  It both encourages and responds to student inquiry.  It points in a direction, not to a path.  And it allows the student to develop thinking and produce work that surpass expectations."

Five "Key Strategies" for Effective Formative Assessment - 0 views

  •  
    Slavin, Hurley, and Chamberlain (2003) have shown that activating students as learning resources for one another produces some of the largest gains seen in any educational interventions, provided two conditions are met. The first is that the learning environment must provide for group goals, so that students are working as a group instead of just working in a group. The second condition is individual accountability, so that each student is responsible for his or her contribution to the group, so there can be no "passengers."

Grading: Not How but Why - 0 views

    "It is not a symbol of rigor to have grades fall into a 'normal' distribution; rather, it is a symbol of failure: failure to teach well, to test well, and to have any influence at all on the intellectual lives of students" (Milton et al. 1986, p. 225).
