Using Rubrics to Support Graded Assessment in a Competency Based Environment. Occasional Paper
Maxwell, Sherridan
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Rubrics are a tool that can be used to provide graded assessment for articulation from vocational education and training (VET) into higher education. By mentoring teachers to use rubrics and interviewing them to determine their experiences in using them, the author explored the potential of rubrics as an assessment tool. Overall, teachers found rubrics not only useful for grading assessments but also for conveying assessment expectations to students. The research was undertaken by a novice researcher in the community of practice program and was funded as part of NCVER's (National Centre for Vocational Education Research) Building Researcher Capacity initiative. (Contains 3 tables.)
