Rubrics for Teacher Education in Community College
Schneider, Florence J.
Community College Enterprise, v12 n1 p39-55 Spr 2006
Traditional assessment techniques may not afford all students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Rubrics may help students reach the objectives of an assignment. In this study, two rubrics were introduced to 55 community college students in two sections of an undergraduate education class. The first rubric was used to grade an assignment after completion of the project. The second rubric was distributed to the students before they completed an assignment. Student response to the experience is surveyed. Most students preferred to have the rubric in advance and reported that the rubric helped clarify the assignment. Three instructors used the rubric to re-grade anonymous term papers. Inter-rater reliability patterns seem to indicate that rubrics may increase objectivity in grading. (Contains 2 tables.)
