18 Ways To Use Rubrics In Education - Edudemic | TESOL Methods and Materials | Scoop.it

"Rubrics are an extremely useful classroom evaluation tool, though many teachers these days aren’t using them anymore, and don’t think they are necessary. The lovely graphic below from Mia MacMeekin takes a look at rubrics and why they should be used and what they can improve, along with a little guide for teachers on rubrics."

FlipQuiz | Gameshow-style Quiz Boards for Educators | TESOL Methods and Materials | Scoop.it

FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.
