In this session, Gregory Ramirez of Madera Community College will address the pros and cons of rubrics as part of assessment. Additionally, he will review his past rubrics so as to encourage strategies for designing rubrics for writing assignments. Attendees—especially those teaching freshman composition courses—will be encouraged to reflect on how they create rubrics and will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
