Developing Student Literacy – The Knowledge and Thinking Rubrics

August 8, 2016

Working with the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE), New Tech Network has developed a set of age and discipline specific rubrics designed to assess student’s content proficiency and critical thinking skills. The rubrics are used when grading literacy tasks or scoring college readiness assessment. This video shows how the rubrics are introduced to teachers.

Topics include:

• A description of the rubrics and how they are used
• The difference between “grading” and “scoring”
• Activities to deepen understanding of the rubric language”
