As a teacher I find it helpful to students to provide a rubric for grading BEFORE a project is assigned. I think the guidelines should be clear for the students, and they should know what they are working towards. In MTI 562 Jacqui provided each of us with a rubric for her grading policies, including projects. When I am completing my assignments I use this rubric as a guideline for how I want to layout my project, and review if I have completed everything. This is something I want my students to do when I assign them a project, so I try to do the same. For our final week, I used Jacqui's rubric to self-assess Project #3.
Personally, I thought that I had a strong understanding of the assignment and provided strong evidence of insights I had gained. I completed the blog post in a thoughtful and meaningful manner without any grammatical mistakes. I presented everything in a sequential order that would make it easy for teachers to navigate through the website. For this project I gave myself 160/160 or 150/150 in each area for a final total of 770/770.
Another element I would have liked to see on this rubric is creativity. I like assess students on how they presented the project in their own creative way. For example:
Creativity: Superior- Presented in a unique way that includes lots of graphics or examples.
Sufficient- Presented in a simple manner with limited graphics or examples.
Below Standard- Presented in a plain manner with no graphic or examples.
By presenting this project with graphics or examples it helps demonstrate understanding, as well as application of web tools we learned in class. I thought my project had many examples and graphics which is helpful for teachers who are learning to navigate the website.
