Week 1

A Question

Does anyone know of a site that shares assessment ideas (or examples) for Web 2.0 assignments/projects? For example, a sharing site for rubrics, rating scales, etc that can be used with podcasting, website creation, blogs etc.?

Hi Megaen!
I haven't gotten into Web 2.0 assessments too much yet (mainly because I'm still working on district access) but this site offers some links to electronic portfolios ePortfolios or eLearnSpace. One tool that I do really like, but it is expensive, is Blended Schools. I have created online tests and lessons using it. It is similar to Moodle but I think it looks nicer and is easier to use. This is another site that lists assessment tools and how to use them (with examples) VickiWiki. A little over 1/2 way down this Online Teacher Resources page has a ton of tools which are fun to play with. Hopefully you will find something here you can use. I enjoy playing around looking for stuff, but there is SOOO much available that it is hard to find something good. Good luck! - D

Hi Megaen~
I don't have a lot of experience with Web 2.0 projects either, but this site has samples of every rubric imaginable, along with several other ideas for and examples of assessments.


Hope it helps!

I don't have much experience with this but I just recently used Rubistar and found it very helpful in creating rubrics (which you can save).

Hi Megaen,
I generally use Rubistar (http://rubistar.4teachers.org/index.php) which allows you to search for different rubrics, but then also edit as appropriate. The website that Cristina gave you, Kathy Schrock's Guide, has tons of samples. http://www.rubrics4teachers.com/ is another site that I go to for ideas. I have also found that generally speaking, I can do a general search for rubrics through Google and it takes me to a variety of sites that at least offer starting points!

You might take a look at Marzano's rubric templates, Meagan. Vince book marked them as we were chatting last week online. Also I've posted a multi-purpose rubric I did for the assessment final project for you as a Google Doc that I published as a webpage: [http://docs.google.com/View?id=dgd6fk65_6hshttsr3]. The idea is that a teacher can copy the sections she wants to use into another table. The scale is a bit weird but corresponds pretty well to the letter grade scheme we use here in BC.

I also use rubistar to find rubrics for my projects. I like that you are able to edit these rubrics for your specific project.


This is a great rubric that I found for blog writing.


Hi Maegan, the following in an interesting site that might help with Web 2.0, assessments, and rubrics:
"Online Instructional Tools" http://powayusd.sdcoe.k12.ca.us/projects/EdTechCentralnew/Tools.htm (I have added it to my favorites for a possible resourse tool for my classes.)

Hey Megaen, Here is a link to a page that has several different sites that have all kinds of assessment rubhttp: www.teach-nology.com/web_tools/rubrics/rics. I hope this might help.


Hi Megaen,
I know I answered your post within moodle but wanted to get my post here also. Janell mentioned Rubistar, which I like and also Rubrican.com is helpful. There are many to chose from!
