August 2nd Meeting

Post date: Jul 16, 2019 5:00:23 PM

Topic and Description:

Are Your Rubrics a Hot Mess?

Rubrics are a commonly used tool to help faculty grade and communicate student performance in the classroom. When designed correctly and used properly, they are incredibly useful however, many rubrics simply fall short. During this “train the trainer” presentation, participants will learn basic rubric anatomy, what every successful rubric should include, the elements of how rubrics connect to assessment, use of language that reduces ambiguity and the importance of calibrating rubrics to build consensus among faculty raters. Examples will be provided along with resource materials participants can use to develop their own faculty rubric development trainings at their institutions. Confidently help faculty transform your institution’s rubrics from “hot mess” to “assess with success”!

Meeting Information:

This month’s meeting will be a guided discussion and workshop. Attendees will be provided with guided scenarios for rubric design along with an interactive calibration activity that can be implemented at any institution. Those in attendance will walk away with a resource guide outlining steps and actions to implement rubric development and refinement activities at other institutions. ** Participants are encouraged to bring examples or rubric best practice and “hot mess” for review and discussion. Share what you have so we can all learn!
