Take the pain out of evaluating the subjective elements of your students’ learning. In this episode, we explore the advantages of developing and using rubrics. What makes a rubric more than a checklist? And how can rubrics help us gut-check out teaching, to make sure we’re really focusing on what’s important to students? Dr. Julie-Ann McFann, CTLT’s Program Team leader, joins us to talk rubric construction, why language is as important as concepts when putting your “grid” together, and whether or not your should share your rubric with your students before they begin the assignment.
