This weeks discussion focuses on one of the most effective applications of good assessment practice to the teaching and learning process: rubrics. Conduct some research that expands your understanding of rubrics in education. Then create a post that discusses the purpose of rubrics, best practices for creating rubrics, and how to use rubrics effectively. Include an example of a rubric that you think represents a high-quality assessment. If youve never had a look at Rubistar for Teachers(http://rubistar.4teachers.org/index.php), you should peruse this resource as part of your research.
