Creating and Aligning Rubrics to Learning Experiences

 

 

Discussion #2:  End of Life Interventions: Can they cause more harm than good.

            This lesson plan explains why tube feeding, IV’s and forced feeding may not be beneficial to a patient at the end of life. The audience is student nurses and nurses. In the lesson plan, students are asked to create a video to explain to families why feeding may not be beneficial at the end of life.  In order to create a rubric for the video, I used 3 criteria:  Concept, Video, and Sound Set up.  The students must clearly be able articulate the concept they are presenting, the video must be complete and well presented and the sound must be clear. The students are graded on the completeness of each category. As the quality of the rubric criteria decline, so does the grade. The lesson plan and rubric are attached.Wk9Assgn1GarrisonR Updated.doc 

             I was surprised it was so easy to create a clear, concise and meaningful rubric. Truemper (2004) discusses how rubrics assist students by giving credit where it is due and by indicating areas needing improvement. Rubrics, as I have discovered, can be customized to fit the intended context (Truemper, 2004).

Isaacson and Stacy (2009) discuss more rubric benefits. The authors indicate that objective specific rubrics become more real to the student and allow critical thinking during self-evaluation (Isaacson & Stacy, 2009).  I have followed rubrics more closely in this current semester at Walden than any other. I have found that with Walden assignments, there is a direct correlation between the grade and the assignment. With a clear rubric, the grade is undisputable.

RubiStar is a fairly well-known website that allows educators to quickly and easily create rubrics. Educators may choose to access rubrics shared by other educators, modify general RubiStar templates, or create their own rubric. Though RubiStar does allow users to create and export templates without using the free registration, it is highly recommended that you create an account. This will allow you to save, review, and edit your rubrics.
