Online - Rubrics 101: Content, Transparency & Grading
This self-paced online workshop provides an introduction to the various types of rubrics and the basic steps for creating a quality rubric. Participants will consider how a rubric can be used to enhance teaching and improve the consistency and efficiency of grading. There are four modules that must be completed. They cover an introduction to rubrics, designing rubrics, implementing rubrics, and finally a wrap-up conclusion module. At the end of each module, there will be opportunities for instructors to reflect on how rubrics can help them better communicate and share performance expectations with students. By the end of the workshop you will have developed and submitted a sample rubric specific to your teaching context and goals.
This self-paced workshop was designed to be completed anytime and anywhere. You can begin at any time and take as little or as long to complete the course as you would like. This workshop will probably take you about 2-3 hours to review all the content and materials and then a little more time for you to create your own rubric. An optional module will be available for you to give and receive peer feedback on the rubric you create and/or participate in a synchronous discussion forum via BlueJeans facilitated by the workshop facilitator on April 15 from 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm.
