edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

The ThemeSpark™ free web-based teacher tool was designed by former teacher David Hunter. The creator of the innovative Zombie-Based Learning curriculum, he founded our parent company EdCourage, Inc. to offer powerful teacher tools that easily add Authentic Learning to standards-based curriculum. David will be presenting on this topic at ASCD15 in Houston.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I set up an account and built a 21st Century Skills Collaboration rubric based on Common Core in less than a minute. Very clever. You can combine standards from different tracks and them share via web address or social media or download. 


This product delivers.  Give it a try.

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Help your students hit the target by defining just where you want them to shoot.
