  • Rubrics

    Prerequisites

    No prior experience is needed.

    Description

    Well-designed task briefs and rubrics are essential to ensuring that students are clear on the expectations and aims of assessments. For teaching staff, a clear assessment task brief and rubric also assists in ensuring an accurate and fair grading process and in quickly providing rich feedback to students.

    This 90-minute workshop introduces the key features to consider when designing task briefs and rubrics for assessment. Participants are asked to bring along an example rubric from their own teaching context to reflect upon in light of the information discussed. Choices of technology in the LMS that support the use of rubrics will also be demonstrated.

    Learning outcomes

    • Identify the key elements in a quality task brief
    • Critically evaluate a rubric and reflect on rubric participants bring along
    • Review technology options for using rubrics to provide feedback
