The Rubrics quest examines the role of rubrics in the process of evaluating student work and communicating to stakeholders effectively on student progress.
Rubrics provide online instructors an objective, authentic, and consistent mode of offering feedback, and this module examines the importance of sharing rubrics and grading standards with the students throughout the duration of the class.
Completing assignments in the online classroom differs greatly from the traditional setting. Criteria for evaluating student work and objective grading practices must integrate objective, specific standards that align with the course content and provide students with authentic commentary on the assignments.
Utilizing rubrics to communicate to students on the mastery of skills in an objective and efficient manner.
Rubrics, much like in the traditional classroom, directs students in terms of the criteria for the assignment, provides specific objectives to complete, and allows instructors a medium to comment on student work in a fair and highly-specific manner.
Utilizing one of the resources discussed above, create a rubric that integrates specific criteria for an assignment and also affords the instructor ample commentary on the student’s product. Make the rubric available in a post in your blog.
