Reflection: Performance Tasks What's Your Function? - Section 4: Recap and Homework


Rubrics are an excellent way to help communicate the expectations of a performance task and also can provide students with timely an constructive feedback on relative strengths and areas for improvement. 

In the What's Your Function Rubric I grade students on three dimensions (Justification, Collaborative Work, etc.) and also provide students with bullets on what the group did well on, as well as areas for improvement. 

I like to provide students with consistent feedback because it not only saves time in terms of grading, but more importantly allows me to have a conversation with what the whole class did well on. For example, I can have individual conversations with students or one group about what they could have worked better on. At the same time, I can have a discussion with a whole class about how the class did on the three main dimensions and make a plan on how to improve on these skills next time.
