In the course of this 2 session workshop you will examine the characteristics of three different types of evaluation tools and review procedures for reviewing rubrics

This session has been designed for teachers (grades 1-12), administrators, curriculum leaders and instructional coaches.
Jay will examine the characteristics of three different types of evaluation tools for scoring and grading student performance – performance lists, holistic, and analytic rubrics – and consider the advantages and limitations of each.
He will then guide you through practical and proven process for designing and refining rubrics. Finally, he shares a collection of online rubric resources.
Jay will review procedures for using rubrics to achieve fair, valid, and reliable evaluation and grading of student learning. He’ll examine ways of using rubrics as tools for teaching and learning, not just for evaluation.
Finally, he will share ideas for involving students in rubric design so that they will have a clear understanding of the “success criteria” by which their work will be judged.
