You want to help your students increase their understanding and application of a Biblical perspective. Using a rubric can help. How?
- Use a rubric to clarify expectations: When assigning a Biblical perspective assessment, review the rubric with your students. This will help your students better understand your expectations.
- Use a rubric to provide feedback: Make a copy of the rubric for each student. Use the rubric to score the assessment, marking on the rubric to indicate how each student is performing. When returning the assessment, give each student a marked-up rubric. (Before returning the rubric, tabulate overall class performance for each rubric line to determine how many students performed above, at, or below standard.)
- Use assessment data to increase learning. Ask each student to use his/her assessment data to develop an action step for increasing understanding and application of a Biblical perspective. For yourself, use the assessment data to modify your instruction.
