9-12pm: Advanced Rubric Use (HSB 209)

This session will address issues faced by educators when they implement rubrics to evaluate student work and dispositional changes. Dr. McConnell will address strategies for ensuring alignment between student outcomes, assignments and the evaluation rubric criteria, unpacking language on rubrics and adapting the AAC&U rubrics appropriately to your course activities.

12-1pm: Lunch on your own. You are welcome to continue the conversation with Dr. McConnell over lunch at the Max (Hoke Dining Room)

1-4pm: Norming and Reliability in Rubric Evaluation (HSB 202)

Norming a rubric is a useful strategy for improving validity and reliability of scoring using rubrics, particularly when more than one rater is involved in the scoring. This session will be a hands-on session where participants will use the GC1Y rubrics to evaluate actual student data from different courses in order to "norm" responses. This workshop will be useful to ALL educators that use rubrics, not just those teaching sections of GC1Y.
