Examining Rubrics the MetaRubric Way!

Not too long ago I wrote a post on rubrics. While at SXSWEdu 2018 last week in Austin, I got an opportunity to attend a session on MetaRubrics presented by a team from the MIT Teaching Systems Lab. This session allowed us to create a project, design a rubric, then evaluate the rubric we designed. It provided lots of discussion on the dynamics, the value of rubrics, and whether or not the rubrics really assess the learning goals. The materials and activities we used are all online and can be downloaded from the MIT Teaching Systems Lab website. It's pretty self-explanatory so check it out! This is a very valuable endeavor that should translate into crafting much better rubrics in the future. Below is a video that describes the procedure; check it out, go through the exercises, then begin to implement more dynamic, on-point rubrics!
