Nancy and Shiao-Chuan will talk about tools to assess students and tools to give and get feedback from students, such Blackboard quizzes, surveys, in-line grading and rubrics. They will also discuss best practices in using online tools for assessing students and suggest some ideas to address academic integrity online. [Details...]
Library instruction can be different from other college teaching. At the same time, librarians are urged to prove our impact. But how, in this model, do we measure our impact? What does successful library instruction look like?
Creating a well thought-out, comprehensive rubric takes work; but the effort is worth it. Rubrics, when used correctly, have a number of benefits. They have been shown to help students become more aware of their learning process and progress, improve student performance, and help instructors quickly and consistently assess assignments from student to student.
This semester, ACERT organized two new prizes to call attention to some of the innovative and exciting work happening at Hunter in the area of digital pedagogy: a Faculty Assignment Prize and a Student Digital Writing Prize. Here, we would like to share with you a small sample of the winning projects.
Research indicates that when properly constructed, rubrics provide valuable feedback, engaging students in critical thinking, and offering support for developing writers. But how can you construct rubrics that help students improve their work on successive drafts?
