Developing rubrics to improve assessment, marking and feedback

Assessment marking rubrics describe the assessment criteria and how they might be enacted across the different levels of performance in a piece of assessment.  They are a great way to encourage fairness in marking, and more uniformity across different markers marking the same assignments.  They do, however, require some work to construct.

In this webinar, Ann Wilson puts the case for developing and using rubrics in marking and feedback.  She shares some resources and strategies that may assist teachers in developing their own rubrics.   By the end of the session you will be able to describe what makes a good rubric and why you might use one, and have a strategy for the development of rubrics for your assessment.
