Grad and Postdoc Workshop: Larva, Chrysalis, Butterfly: Designing and Implementing Rubrics (Part 2)

Modified: April 10, 2017
Friday, April 21, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Searle Center Library
Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching
627 Dartmouth Place
Evanston, IL


Workshop Description:

Concrete expectations for complex tasks, feedback focused on process and student growth, efficient and robust evaluation tools: a good rubric can make you run faster, jump higher, and assess with the best. This pair of workshops will focus on the elements of rubric design and implementation—from analyzing assessment tasks, to selecting appropriate rubric structures, to drafting and adapting rubrics for classroom use. Batteries not included.

In Part 2, they will focus on preparing rubrics for classroom use: aligning rubrics with course outcomes, clearly articulating expectations of student performance, and integrating rubrics into assessment and feedback practices. Participants should come with a fully drafted rubric to share and workshop. They will end this workshop with rubrics ready to tweak, revise, and implement.

(Note: Participating in Part 2 requires a fully drafted rubric. Attending Part 1 is not a prerequisite for Part 2, but the latter workshop is intentionally designed for participants with a basic knowledge of rubric design and a fully drafted rubric to share and workshop.)
