1f: Designing Student Assessment
Rubrics are meant to be instructive, formative assessments. The goal is to have students recognize what proficient work is and persevere until they meet that target. Performance levels don’t translate neatly into grades because the work is criterion-referenced instead of norm-referenced.
Tracking Student Progress
Students’ responses to assessments can shed light on the success of a lesson and the progress of individual students. Fill in the students’ names and the type and date of assessments to get a picture of what students understand.
