A Conundrum: Rubrics or Creativity/Metacognitive Development?
Chapman, Valerie G.; Inman, M. Duane
Educational Horizons, v87 n3 p198-202 Spr 2009
The goal of this article is raising awareness of several issues recently brought to the authors' attention. Among them are concerns that rubrics are a pervasive assessment tool in current educational settings. The authors posit how the pervasive use of rubrics broaches concerns about teachers' grading practices with rubrics and students' expectations of delimiting guidance related to specificity within rubrics.
