The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment (OIR) will present a 90-minute workshop on developing and using rubrics to enhance teaching and student learning. Rubrics are a valuable tool for student learning as well as for performance assessment (papers, projects, field experiences, performances, presentations, capstone experiences, etc.).
The Rubrics workshop will be offered:
- Thursday, October 25 at Loudoun Campus from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in LR 256
- Thursday, November 1 at Annandale Campus from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Ernst, Seminar Room A
- Thursday, November 8 at Manassas Campus from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in MP 133
Benefits for faculty are that rubrics help clarify hard to explain goals; make grading easier, faster, more accurate and consistent; and provide useful feedback to faculty on the effectiveness of instruction. Benefits for students are that rubrics help students understand what is expected and become better judges of the quality of their work, show students how their work will be evaluated, and provide students with more informative feedback about their strengths and areas in need of improvement.
To learn more about the Rubrics workshop, see the flyers in this edition of Intercom or contact Student Learning Outcomes Specialist Sharon Karkehabadi at 703-764-7390 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
