Reflection: Flexibility How do my eyes work? - Section 6: Evaluate


Well, I initially planned to use this rubric, but after conferencing with my peers I decided to adjust the rubric. I changed the third row to be called accurate observations, and then I allow the class to put a 1 or a 0. 

So, I changed the words to accurate instead of correct, because correct makes it seem more like there is only one answer. Really there are many different ways the students could accurately observe the light.

Then, I decided to allow the students to added the numbers to give them more to do. Circling a 1 or 0 is less engaging. I felt like if they actually had to add the number it would require the students do more recording. Recording numbers seems to be more advanced of a skill than circling 1 or 0. I do like to change up my rubrics to allow the students exposure to different models, because it provides my class with more exposure to rubrics. So, they will simply have more experience assessing themselves, and their peers.
