Snapshot: Rubrics have an instant appeal to anyone who assesses student work. But the educator’s’ iinitial response, “That’s exactly what I need,” is often quickly followed by, “You’re kidding. How do I find the time to develop rubrics for all of my assignments?”
In this webinar, Jay McTighe helps you become proficient at designing and scoring with rubrics. He will show you a structured process for developing rubrics for virtually any task.
Writing a good rubric takes far less time than doubting yourself while you grade your students’ papers or tests because your criteria are so loosely defined, or answering myriad questions froms students because the assignment is not clear. Jay will review procedures for achieving fair, valid, and reliable evaluation of student learning.
Rubrics help students regulate and increase their learning by giving them a good sense of what they are setting out to learn and do. Jay will show you how to use rubrics to leverage student learning.
