How to use a rubric to improve student learning

This instructors' resource blog post, from 2018, gives concrete and specific examples of using a rubric to give objective and actionable feedback to a student about a piece of writing.  Since rubrics work similarly no matter what type of learning  is being assessed, this resource may also prove helpful to individuals using the rubrics in this collection.  Instructors who use rubrics may also benefit by watching, and sharing with their students, this video on how, as a student, to use the rubric provided by the instructor to get a better grade!

Making Sense of Qualitative Data (Reflections)

Even folks with Ph.D's and lots of familiarity with experiential learning can be skittish about using rubrics to make sense of authentic artifacts of reflective learning. This explanation is the simplest and clearest we've yet seen about how to code qualitative data.  Using a rubric is a type of deductive coding, so, to get more comfortable with it, all you really need to read is the part of this essay on "Deductive Coding 101."  But the advice on keeping things simple is excellent, too.
