Using Scoring Rubrics to Evaluate Inquiry
Lunsford, Eddie; Melear, Claudia T.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v34 n1 p34-38 Sep 2004
This article explores the problem of assigning grades to students engaged in nontraditional activities, especially scientific inquiry. We suggest using scoring rubrics to guide students in their work and to assist teachers with grading. We present the steps involved in the construction of rubrics, and we show sample rubrics. (Contains 5 figures.)
