Scoring Rubrics Part II: How? ERIC/AE Digest.
Moskal, Barbara M.
This Digest provides a process for developing scoring rubrics. The first step is to identify clearly the qualities that need to be displayed in a student's work to demonstrate proficient performance. These qualities will be the top level or levels of scoring criteria for the scoring rubric. Then the decision must be made whether the information desired from the evaluation can best be acquired through an analytic or holistic scoring rubric. The evaluator may then to choose to define the criteria for the lowest level of performance, and if desired, comparisons can be made between the criteria for each existing score point. Each score category should be defined using descriptions of the work rather than judgments about the work. To determine whether a scoring rubric provides adequate descriptions, another teacher may be asked to use the scoring rubric to evaluate a subset of student responses. Differences between the scores assigned by the rubric developer and a second scorer will show how the rubric may be clarified further. There are many resources available to teachers who wish to use scoring rubrics in their classrooms. Some of these are listed, including the ERIC Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation.
