Scoring rubrics boon or bane?
SCORING RUBRICS is BOON: BOON Rubrics appeal to teachers and students for many reasons. First, they are powerful tools for both teaching and assessment. [ [ Rubrics can improve student performance, as well as monitor it, by making teachers' expectations clear and by showing students how to meet these expectations.The result is often marked improvements in the quality of student work and in
learning. Thus, the most common argument for using rubrics is they help define "quality." One student actually didn't like rubrics for this very reason: "If you get something wrong," she said, "your teacher can prove you knew what you were supposed to do!" A second reason that rubrics are useful is that they help students become more thoughtful judgesof the quality of their own and others' work. When rubrics are used to guide self- and peer-assessment, students become increasingly able to spot and solve problems in their own and one another's work. ] ]
