This installment in the @5min Video series is on: "An Introduction to 'Rubrics' for Assessing Students’ Coursework."
Description: As a course instructor, are you looking for ways to reduce the amount of time it takes to grade students’ work? Would you like to reduce the amount of instances that students argue about their grade on an assignment? Would you like your students to be more successful in achieving the intended goals of an assignment? Rubrics can provide a viable solution to these challenges!
In the recording, I’ll discuss key characteristics of rubrics, their advantages to course instructors and students, and the key components of an “analytic” type rubric, which is commonly used in higher education.
This presentation is the first in a series on Rubrics. In upcoming @5min. videos, I’ll continue with this topic with a discussion on constructing specific rubrics that can be used to grade Research Papers, Discussion Boards, and Collaborative Projects. If you’re interested in this topic, I encourage you to start with this presentation, which will provide the foundation for subsequent videos in the @5min Rubric series.
