Topic: Rubrics and Evaluation of Composition

10-second review: The purpose of most rubrics—statements that describe the good paper, average paper and poor paper, etc.—are usually designed for quick and easy assessment. The author suggests how to give them more meaning to students.

Title: “Scoring Rubrics and the Material Conditions of our Relations with Students.” D Martins. Teaching English in the Two-Year College (December 2008), 123-137. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary: The Author suggests that teachers develop the rubrics in collaboration with the students. Could change the teacher’s initial ideas on the purpose and format of the rubric.

Comment: Makes sense to me. RayS.
