With developments in open assessment, open educational resources, open badges etc gathering pace, how to support consistent marking of evidence submitted for open assessment requires consideration. Rubrics can help to set out the learning outcomes and measurements for assessing work, and allow multiple assessors and / or assessors who do not know the person submitting evidence, to judge the work against. This article pulls together links to some example assessment rubrics and resources for creating your own rubrics.

"I tweeted yesterday an interesting news item in Erik Robelen’s blog in Education Week that a few states (Oklahoma, California, Massachusetts) are seriously looking into some sort of assessment of creative thinking as part of the whole 21st century skills/entrepreneurship movement.

Although this rubric, provided by UW-Stout, is focused on middle and high school collaboration, I think it could of great use in adult education as well.

Would you feel comfortable with the language?
The Journal of Online Learning and Teaching...
This paper discusses the development, implementation, and evaluation of a grading rubric for online discussions. Despite the growing popularity of grading rubrics and the parallel growth of online learning, there is a lack of research on the topic of grading online discussions. Grading discussions (sometimes called class participation) in an online learning environment can be particularly challenging. In this paper, the authors share their experience of creating and implementing a comprehensive grading rubric for online discussions that evaluates the following criteria: quantity, quality, timeliness, and writing proficiency. Student perceptions regarding the use of the discussion rubric are also analyzed and areas of future research are suggested.
