Teaching Performance Criteria to Students
This is one chapter from a textbook entitled Scoring Rubrics in the Classroom: Using Performance Criteria for Assessing and Improving Student Performance. In this chapter, the authors link assessment and instruction by exploring the use of rubrics as instructional tools to involve students in their own assessment and improve student performance. Practical strategies for teaching performance criteria to students, involving students in peer and self-assessment, providing student-friendly feedback, and the instructional use of anchors are offered. The guiding question is: How can we use rubrics to improve, as well as judge, student performance?
