Submitted by Elizabeth McPhee

In this Level Up post Liz shares three rubrics that she has developed for her Field Seminar course. Liz consulted with Mel Young about different types of rubrics and strategies that can be used to assess learning.

Feedback was positive because students found the expectations and grading criteria of the assignments to be clear and easy to understand.

Ideas for Assessment: Book Laptops for Testing

Are you looking to deliver tests through Moodle or another online solution?

Did you know that Cambrian College has a pool of 90 laptops reserved for use during large special events? These laptops are available on a first-come first-served basis to support events such as mobile testing. A representative from IT will assist with set up and tear down; and, if requested, can be on-call throughout the duration of the test to ensure there are no technical issues. 

Specific areas of the college have guaranteed WiFi availability at all times. Refer to the online booking page for more information on which rooms the laptops are best suited for.

Laptops can be booked through Tier3 and can be booked at the same time as your room booking.

Try This: Tools from Journalism + Design

Journalism + Design Card Deck

Are you interested in having your students:

  • Write
  • Interview
  • Observe
  • Present
  • Tell stories
  • Make a storyboard, or
  • Create a mind-map?
If yes to any of the above, check out the Tools for Educators through Journalism + Design - a group of journalism professors who are passionate about teaching communication skills in an increasingly complex 21st century world.

They have created entire lesson plans and assessment rubrics that you can use in your own classroom for active and experiential learning. Their resources can very easily be modified for applications across subject areas that involve critical thinking and communication. 

If you are interested, the Hub has obtained their deck of cards that you can use with your students - inquire with Sarah Wendorf
"At Journalism + Design, we believe that students need more than technical skills. They need mindsets for embracing complexity and confidently navigating the unknown. The design process is a problem-solving tool that encourages playfulness, collaboration, and experimentation. We use this method to help students build a deep understanding of their audience and its needs, to quickly prototype and test new ideas, and to thoughtfully assess their work." (Source)
