Rubrics are used extensively in assessment. Rubrics play a large role in how student learning is evaluated and recorded.

A well written test reveals what students know, what they have been taught, and what they do not know. 

Identifying technology tools to assist in the assessment of student learning is essential in the online environment.

It is essential that rubrics are designed to measure what they should be evaluating (validity), but also that no matter who uses the rubric, the same score would be obtained (reliability).

There are specific terms that are part of the "rubric world" and that have a specific definition in this context. These terms are commonly utilized as part of a comprehensive assessment plan. Many of these terms have been used throughout this course.

Rubrics are an important part of the class and should be carefully thought out when assigning rubrics.


There are pros and cons to creating and using rubrics.  However, the pros outweigh the negatives.


I found the Solomon Amendment very interesting.  Student recruiting information elements are defined by law and must be released if requested.  The institution has discretion in determining Director Information by recruiting information must be released.  Student recruitment information is very similar to Directory Information.

I agree Joyce.  It's important that employees are properly trained and that appropriate oversight is provided.  It's also another good idea to have regular training sessions to help instill the policies and procedures.


I have learned how important it is to understand what can and can not be released and what are the exceptions.  I would apply this information by checking the policy and asking questions if I am unsure what information, if any can be released withing FERPA.
