Principles of Learning -
A useful framework for looking at how learning happens and can be made to happen within the institutional structure of school.
*Important Question: Which of the 9 principles applies to assessment based on performance or product? How? Which might you build in to an assessment scheme that involves the use of rubrics?

***Assignment: Design a rubric to use with a project you’ve adopted, adapted, or created. Which criteria would you incorporate in the rubric?

Yes, list all the parts/dimensions of the student product that should be rated, a series of ratings (A, B, C etc.), and define what a product would look like in order to merit each of these ratings… and then double back to the Principles of Learning to reflect on what other dimensions (social?) might be included in your rating scheme as well.

You may use a rubric building online tool or simply create one on your own using WORD or another resource that will produce a practical rubric form for classroom use.
