In this workshop, you will learn how to evaluate constructed rubrics and create meaningful rubrics to measure student learning outcomes and student products. You will understand why this process is necessary and will begin developing a rubric to evaluate students’ work. In addition, you will discuss how these rubrics are useful for much more than assigning grades. Please bring course learning outcomes, your program outcomes and an assignment for which you would like to develop a rubric to evaluate.
