The new LDC student work rubrics for 2016-17, created by the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE), are now available for any Tasks teachers build in LDC CoreTools. These innovative rubrics have been field tested and studied for validity and reliability.
For the first time, teachers can now quickly and easily create rubrics that are specifically aligned to the exact content and standards in the Tasks they are building for their students.
This new functionality can be found in the LDC CoreTools module editor to enable users to take full advantage of these exciting, innovative rubrics, which have been field tested and studied for validity and reliability.
The new “base” student work rubrics are specifically designed to assess the reading and writing that students do in response to opinion/argumentation or informational/explanatory Tasks, and are aligned to appropriate reading and writing standards within the following grade-bands:
The above rubrics come with the following default scoring dimensions:
Selection/Citation of Evidence
Development/Explanation of Sources
Teachers now may remove any of the above dimensions from their rubric, if appropriate.
Teachers may now add an “Additional Task Demands” dimension if their Task includes any additional demands that they need to assess.
