Assignment 2 | Co-Created Rubrics for Evaluating Digital Learning Resources (Team)

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to provide you and your team an opportunity to design a rubric for the assessment of Assignment 3 – the Draft Digital Learning Resource and Design Note. Peer review of resources in the context of graduate education is a critical component of learning and this assignment will support you and your team to practice researching and debating how “high quality” might be defined in the context of digital learning resources. This assignment helps determine your achievement of course Learning Outcome C – critique a digital learning resource.

Instructions

For this assignment, you will consider the Purpose and Instructions sections for Assignment 3 and design and create a rubric that will help you, your team, and your faculty member evaluate a draft digital learning resource for quality.

Part 1 – 10% – Submit your Rubric and Short Written Summary as a Team to the Assignment 2 Co-Created Rubrics Dropbox

The Team deliverable for this assignment will include a grading rubric that you and your Team creates that captures the components of Assignment 3 and provides a spectrum of possibilities a faculty member might use to rigorously assess digital learning design work. A short written team summary (250-300 words) should accompany the rubric and confirm the team rationale for the quality criteria and rating scale you selected and any literature or web-based resources used to create the rubric. You and your team are expected to adhere to APA standards for citations and references in the summary and to back up your statements with appropriate academic literature.

Part 2 – 5% – Submit Individually to the Assignment 2 Personal Reflection Moodle Dropbox

Individual Reflection – Along with your team’s agreed-upon rubric and summary, you will include a personal reflection of the process you and your team engaged in to determine your final design and what you learned about creating rubrics and evaluating the quality of digital learning resources (100 words or fewer for the reflection).

Total Value for Assignment 2: 15%

Ten percent of the grade will be assigned to the Team for the quality of the rubric and summary. Five percent of the grade will be for your individual reflection.

Assign a Team Member to submit the Team Rubric and Summary (in one document) to the Team Assignment 2: Co-Created Rubrics (Team) dropbox in Moodle. Submit your Assignment 2 Personal Reflection to the Assignment 2: Personal Reflection (Individual) dropbox in Moodle.

Design of a Rubric for Evaluating the Quality of a Digital Learning Resource The design approach used clearly aligns with a variety of learning theories and instructional design principles. The rubric is well organized with clear descriptions of the assessment criteria and a spectrum of grading options. The spectrum of grading options provides clarity for learners and assessors about what constitutes all grading categories. The design approach used clearly aligns with some learning theories and instructional design principles. The rubric is well organized with adequate descriptions of the assessment criteria and a spectrum of grading options. The spectrum of grading options provides clarity for learners and assessors about what constitutes all grading categories. The design approach used mentions design principles and learning theories. The rubric is well organized with adequate descriptions of the assessment criteria and a spectrum of grading options. The spectrum of grading options is clear but leaves room for grader subjectivity. The design approach used does not identify design principles or learning theories. The rubric is not well organized and does not include descriptions of the assessment criteria or a spectrum of grading options. The spectrum of grading options is poorly conceived.
Summary of the Team Rubric Design Process The written summary is concise (between 250 – 300 words) and clearly describes the academic process the Team used to create their final product (the Rubric). The summary references the literature and other web resources used to create the rubric. The written summary is concise (between 250 – 300 words) and describes the academic process the Team used to create their final product (the Rubric). There are a few references to the literature used to create the rubric. The written summary is too short or too long and only adequately describes the academic process the Team used to create their final product (the Rubric). There are a few (if any) references to the literature used to create the rubric. The written summary is too short or too long and barely describes the academic process the Team used to create their final product (the Rubric).
