My first SBG-styles assessment was last Friday. I’m happy with my rubric that I talked about a few posts down… it has proved robust in terms of reserving top scores for truly outstanding work, while making the rest of the spectrum meaningful.
This is the short version:
- 4 = Outstanding. You’re awesome.
- 3.5 = Good. You’re almost awesome, except for that one mistake.
- 3 = Proficient. You can do it. But not yet awesomely.
- 2 = Developing. Developing awesomeness.
- 1 = Basic. Faintly reminiscent of awesome.
- 0 = You left it blank. Not awesome.
I told them I wasn’t surprised that most of the scores for the three different standards I assessed were 1’s and 2’s. It makes sense, it was the fourth day of school. The top score given on any standard was a 3.5 (the distinction helps out).
Oh, and click the “Number Systems Unit” link above—it’s a functional working draft.
Coming next week: “Second Unit Blues,” in which our hero has under-planned for the second unit of the year again.
