Using Rubrics & Feedback to Improve Student Performance
In this workshop, participants will review the best practices of building effective rubrics and providing quality feedback. Through varied activities, participants will be equipped with the skills necessary to implement rubrics to improve student performance.
In an effort to make learners more comfortable with the online learning environment, each module is consistent in structure and nature. Participants are required to complete module activities, which include readings, lectures, and an assignment, prior to accessing subsequent modules.
Using Rubrics and Feedback to Improve Student Performance incorporates a variety of instructional materials to assist participants in their acquisition of knowledge on rubrics and feedback. Each module introduces topics and concepts with the use of CITT-created lectures and the inclusion of academic journals and websites. Participants conclude each module with an activity that allows for hands-on experience with creating and implementing rubrics and providing constructive feedback.
Rubrics’ Impact on Student Success
The Rubrics’ Impact on Student Success module analyzes the role of rubrics in student performance. Participants will review the role of rubrics in higher education, and best practices for designing and developing effective rubrics. At the end of the module, participants will review an assignment and build a rubric with criteria and ratings.
Participants will explore the different types of feedback. Facilitators will review the functions and best practices of feedback, and participants will be given the opportunity to provide feedback using an example assignment. During the exercise, participants will be able to analyze each other’s feedback and decide if the type of feedback given is appropriate for the example assessment.
This is the second workshop in a three-part series designed for participants to earn the Rethinking Assessment certification. Successful completion of all workshop requirements earns participants an open badge. This includes a course description and the criteria required to receive the badge.
