10 Comments on “Guiding Principles Draft Standards and Rubrics”

    Clear and Effective Communicator Standards: Do you want consistent punctuation at the end of each item? One has a comma and the others do not.

    Rubric Draft 2: Organizational #1: should be seem, not seems
    Fluency #2: I still struggle with “hums along.” What does that mean?
    Fluency #1: Limits instead of impedes?

    Video: T3: “dead space … present” instead of “dead space…heard.”
    A2: uneven instead of inconsistent.
    C2: be instead of bee. I like bees, though.

    Should the video convention have something about cohesiveness of transitions? How do you hear dead space?
    Writing rubric is nice, but a bit lofty. (sorry, I could not think of the right word). Also should “infrequent” be defined?

    For the Blogging and Oral conventions sections, I believe a full 4, 3, 2, 1 scale should be added, for continuity’s sake.

    For the Keynote section, specific numbers are used – especially in the errors area – which we’ve been advised to avoid in rubric creation.

    For the Writing and Video sections, I did not notice any specific needs that should be addressed, but that surely doesn’t mean that there aren’t any.

    Key note: MLA only? Perhaps the word “appears” is ambiguous.

    I really like the keynote layout and think it will be very useful in my classes next year.

    Writing Conventions: “clean and clear”–meaning? Level 2 mentions aesthetics. Level 1 nothing to mirror that.

    Oral Presentations: A. “appropriated” should be “appropriate”; B. is comfort with content the same as comfort with making an oral presentation? (eye contact and gestures); C. covered by “Voice” in main rubric?; D. ditto organization in main rubric; E. are we eliminating “Presentation” in the main rubric? If not, would that cover it?

    Keynote: citation format should be left unspecified on rubric (MLA) to allow teacher preference

    Writing Conventions:
    4 grade-level errors? Not sure that this would make this useful. How about common errors.
    3: some flaws instead of “isn’t mechanically….” Errors do not detract.
    Perhaps streamline and make the #1 indicator more mild in word choice – less punitive.

    Presentations:
    #4 I am not sure about verbal fillers. Include something about having very little text. Sometimes kids just put all words on the slide rather than a few bullets.

    Speech Conventions oral presentations: A#4 appropriate, not appropriated. I like that there is only #4. Why not just leave the bar high? (Sort of joking…)

    Student Friendly: A2 should have vague instead of ambiguous.
