Grade Smarter, Not Harder: Building Analytic Rubrics for Writing Assignments from Learning Outcomes
3:00-4:30pm, held virtually as MS TEAMS meeting
Assessing writing assignments like research papers and reports can be a huge time-suck for faculty and can also fail to provide meaningful feedback for students if the grading is not aligned with course and program learning objectives. In this workshop, Dr. Smith, a published online writing instruction expert, walks faculty through the process of identifying and building learning outcomes for a major writing project, before building detailed analytic rubrics from those outcomes. These rubrics cut down on the time spent grading, standardize assessment across the class, and create transparency for students to understand what they are being graded on and how they can improve.
