  • Next message: Teresa Schulze: "[Teacher-talkinquiry] Assessments"

     
    Hi Letty and George,
    I am very interested in your book. George in KY we use a 4point scoring
    rubric for pretty much everything and I found that I successfully converted
    this to grades by calling proficient a 95, apprentice(partially correct
    and/or needed assistance to complete) an 80, novice a 65, and distinguished
    a 100. This worked for me...but we also have had extensive training in
    identifying these 4 levels. The scoring process is a holistic one with
    specific rubric criteria developed in conjunction with the prompt for
    student work.

    George,

    There's a book called Rubric, Assessment and Checklist
    that you can use to give you daily grades. This is
    also the most effective way to demonstrate portfolio
    work. It focuses on modeling, rubrics,
    group/individual work and many other items. I use it
    all of the time. I will forward the ISBN as soon as I
    get back to school.

    Good Luck!

    Letty
