Assessment and Evaluation Guidelines. (Web Sighting)


Holzberg, Carol S., Technology & Learning


Assessment rubrics listing benchmarks for student achievement assist teachers by providing objective guidelines to measure and evaluate learning. These rubrics also improve learning because students who understand them before a project is due can take the evaluation criteria into account as they complete their work. Visit the following Web sites for assessment tips and tools and for help in developing, adapting, or adopting assessments that detail what you expect students to learn and evaluate what they have mastered for any given lesson.

* RubiStar (rubistar.4teachers.org) Learn how to create rubrics that measure student performance in project-based learning activities. Customizable rubrics for written reports, multimedia projects, oral presentations, and science activities assist teachers who don't have time to develop their own evaluation criteria. A special tool allows you to enter evaluation data into RubiStar after project completion and determine which skills students found difficult.
