- Rubrics help both in clarifying standards and in communicating feedback to students. If your class does not already include rubrics, you can take advantage of our many resources for creating rubrics for your assignments.
- Discuss the rubric with your students before you use it.
- Ask students to complete process questions for each assignment, to encourage them to recognize and reflect on the steps required for completing successful work. (Learn more: Assignment Process Sheets)
Grade early and regularly. Students are more likely to hit the target if they have more than one shot. Give students an early opportunity to learn your standards early and keep them informed of their progress throughout the semester. Don't wait until midterms, or worse, the end of the semester, to let students know where they stand on the core skills and ideas being taught in your class.(
