Have you ever struggled to write a good rubric? Sat in front of your computer with a big sigh and thought, okay, what do I write now? Googled other people's rubrics to get a start? Well than this is the course for you!
Welcome to All About Assessment Rubrics: Creating robust reliable and coherent rubrics for student success. Give me just 2 hours of your time, by the end of which you should be able to write some pretty great rubrics, making you the rubric expert in your staffroom or school, and have everyone 'borrowing' your work!
This course is all about helping you to create robust, reliable and coherent rubrics for every student’s success. During the 4 sessions, I give you some background information about the development of rubrics, discuss the what and why of rubrics, situating them in the context of good classroom curriculum planning. I then take you through in detail how to write good coherent rubrics, that will assess what your intended learning outcomes say! I conclude by showing you a couple of ways you can use rubrics to make good comparable and manageable judgements.
The course is self directed and draws on my own 20+ years experience as a teacher, my involvement in research on curriculum design and assessment practices, and will encourage you to make connections from your practice. It is closely linked to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Proficient levels at Standard 5 (5.1,5.2, 5.3). The bonus workbook gives you space to reflect on your learning. The comment sections enables you to collaborate with others and share your experiences.
On completion, you will walk away with a sound understanding of how to write robust and consistent assessment rubrics. You will have reflected on what you have learned ready to submit to your teaching accrediting body. On 100% completion you will also receive a Certificate of Completion, which you can use as evidence of your professional learning.
I am passionate about education. My philosophy of education is the belief that all students have the right and ability to learn, and it is the role as educators to promote not only learning, but a lifelong love of learning. This has been the foundation of my own practice. It guides my approach to my teaching, my research and my life.
I have been working in education since 1987. I have worked as a teacher (K-12), lecturer, teacher educator, professional development coordinator, education researcher, educational/instructional designer, education manager, small business owner, and as a private education consultant.
