1 ESL RUBRICS As we learned in the workshop entitled Incorporating Rubrics into Instruction which is part of the Student Success ASSESSMENT certificate, rubrics can be used for formative assessment. Formative Assessment is a tool we use to gauge student performance. While generally speaking multiple choice tests and other objective measures indicate what students know, formative assessments generally indicate what students can do and are generally administered often during the semester to help FORM instruction. Students can measure their own progress with rubrics, peers can measure a peer s performance, and the teacher can measure student performance. If the rubric is reliable, all should get similar results. Since the rubric workshop was lacking on examples especially for ESL, I have put together a few rubrics that might be helpful. Of course these are samples and teachers are free to create their own. You might consider using Rubistar to do so. The rubrics that follow were first created in Rubistar and then adapted for our students and their levels (rubistar.4teachers.org) You will find level rubrics for Team Presentations Speaking Study Habits I chose not to do writing because there are so many aspects of writing at each level and I suspected that you would have personal ideas about what you might include. I would caution that you do not try to be so detailed in a rubric that you can t successfully measure students. The system will bog down if you do so. If grammar is important to you for example, chose one or two grammar points that define the level, don t mention every grammar point they must learn in class. STEPS 1. Refine the rubric to your preferences 2. Go over the rubric with students and get feedback 3. Upper levels: adjust rubric based on student feedback. 4. Use the rubric in various ways often in the class. a. Teacher s about students. b. Students about themselves. c. Students about peers. 5. Adapt instruction to meet needs where. 6. Make your own rubric to reflect on your teaching skills.
