ITL Research What skills do our students need to be successful in the workforce, and how are we measuring those skills in our schools? Researched 7 schools (then expanded to others)
What role do you feel teachers play in preparing students? How do you think teachers can help students prepare for their future?
Are students required to build knowledge? Is that knowledge interdisciplinary? Did the student produce extended communication? Was the communication well-developed and organized around a thesis? Are students required to share responsibility and make substantive decisions with other people? Is the learning activity long term? Do students plan and assess their own work? Do students use ICT to support knowledge building? Is ICT necessary to that knowledge building? Does the learning activity require solving authentic, real world problems? Are students’ solutions implemented in the real world?
Coding Requirements Rules that apply to all rubrics.
Main Requirement Rule • What do students spend most of their time doing? • What do teachers emphasize in their grading criteria?
Evidence Rule • Select coding based purely on evidence • Use evidence from • Learning activity • Learning activity cover sheet • Teachers’ grading criteria or other available materials
Strict Rule • When in doubt, choose the lower coding. • (see Evidence Rule)
