One additional revision of Julia’s rubric has been made based on feedback from our friend and colleague, Angél W. Kytle (@akytle). In her comment, she asks
“… A couple of questions– first, do you need the number? Why have the kids rank themselves, especially if they are reflecting and also describing evidence of their assessment of themselves? …” (read all of the comments)
The numbers are actually quite important to me. They are not for quantitative purposes. They are communicating levels to move through. Our target is level 3, always. The numbers indicate what level you are on and offer one way (or two) to level up. Of course, once you’ve reached the target, we want you to stretch and level up if possible. I use the following visual when presenting and teaching about leveled assessments.
While I must be frustrating her, Julia continues to think, learn, and prototype assessments.
I love how Julia continues to act on and ask for feedback. Angél’s question help us move another step in the right direction. We value and appreciate any feedback, warm or cool, that you might also offer.
