Hello colleagues, Have you ever heard it said about assessment that we teachers need to "make the evaluation criteria visible"? This concept resonates with me as I think about the many experiences I've had in school when I was left wondering how a project or a writing assignment would be graded by a particular teacher. Very often I had no idea.
Making the evaluation criteria visible before students complete an assignment is usually very helpful. A useful tool that can help us to do that is a rubric.
