Sample Assessment

Using Rubrics

In addition to the use of traditional assessments i.e. True/False, Multiple Choice, Short Answer, performance based assessment will be utilized. An important feature of this form of assessment is the use of rubrics. This form of evaluation, appeals to the student who does not feel at ease with traditional testing.

The following rubric is used for a unit on Credit. It covers four reasonable levels of performance: outstanding; above average; average; and below average. It also measures five areas of skill that are easily understandable and observable.
