Before doing a little holidays, which at the month we are perhaps it is already time, I present a new CoRubrics functionality that I had been asked on several occasions: the possibility of not making required the qualification of all aspects of the rubric.
This course we have begun to use in a habitual way and more or less systematic the single-point rubrics. I speak in the plural because it is not only my own thing, but also that of the teachers of my school who work on projects in the 4th year of ESO.
For those of you who do not know single-point rubrics (here the link from where I knew them), they are nothing more than usual analytical rubrics, where only the expert level is indicated and, instead of evaluating by selecting a level, it is necessary to write down which points of each aspect must be improved to become an expert and which points are already correct. In the link you can see different models.
Next, one of the ones we use to evaluate the students’ portfolio.
Many people still believe that evaluating with rubrics is formative evaluation and, in many cases, it is not. A rubric, in fact, provides clear criteria when evaluating a task. Now, this can be done so that the student detects his mistakes and his strong points and reflects on his learning (formative evaluation) or it can be done simply mechanically to grade tasks (summative or certifying evaluation).
I do not renounce either of the two, whether for formative evaluation or for summative evaluation, using rubrics is always positive. The student knows the criteria that will be used to evaluate a task. And that is always positive.
Now, since we use the rubrics, let’s use them making formative evaluation, that there are a thousand studies that show that it is one of the measures that most improves the learning of the students. And what exactly does it mean to make formative evaluation with rubrics?
CoRubrics launches new version. Fixes detected errors and adds a new option. Now allows you to display the results in radar charts.
One of CoRubrics’ weaknesses was sending the results to the students. It was difficult for young students, especially in primary school, to understand the numbers in the rubric. This new version includes the option to also send a radar chart.
A new version of CoRubrics GSD is now available in the spreadsheet add-ons Chrome store, an add-on to evaluate with rubrics.
This new version has the main novelty of integrating with Classroom. This integration takes place in 3 aspects.
