Duration: 7 hrs
This course provides an introduction to key elements and principles of rubric design. Participants will review several different types of rubrics (eg. holistic, analytic, general, task-specific rubrics) and discuss their effectiveness for different purposes of teaching and assessment. In particular, there will be an emphasis on distinguishing the use of a rubric in formative and/or summative assessment. The participants will be given an opportunity to design a rubric that should be immediately useful for their classroom teaching and assessment, leading to sharing of their works. Finally, issues of staff competency in effectively designing and using rubrics would be presented.
