Project information: The aim of this project is to investigate the innovative and collaborative use of assessment rubrics, in partnership between students and academic staff, in order to develop a model of collaborative rubric practice that can be applied across disciplines.
This grant seeks to unpack the current use of rubrics in tertiary assessment, research the design of rubrics in collaboration with students, and disseminate ideas and recommendations. Our aims are to develop:
- a model of collaborative rubric practice (including design, use and moderation of rubrics)
- cross disciplinary case studies of collaborative rubric practice
- practical, research-informed recommendations for how to engage students in the collaborative process of designing, using and moderating assessment rubrics.
