Rare Book

Review:

"Anyone struggling with the new landscape of direct assessment of student learning demanded by accreditors and employers will find this new and expanded edition of Introduction to Rubrics to be exactly what they need. Based upon their extensive experience, and drawing on a wide variety of examples of rubric use by faculty across institutions and disciplines, the authors clearly and insightfully present the value of rubrics, the process of developing rubrics and using them, and their usefulness for faculty, and for improving student learning. A 'must' read for anyone seriously interested in student learning enhancement."-- (05/01/2012)

"Rubrics often generate about as much enthusiasm as the department newsletter -- until you use them. Dannelle D. Stevens and Antonia J. Levi's Introduction to Rubrics: An Assessment Tool to Save Grading Time, Convey Effective Feedback and Promote Student Learning (Stylus, 2012) will convince you to give them a try. The concept is simple: rather than having students guess what they need to do for a good paper, give them a simple, straightforward outline. Even better, have them participate in creating the rubric. Stevens and Levi argue persuasively that involving students in the generation of a rubric results in a greater sense of buy-in.

Rubrics are also especially helpful for three groups of students: first-generation college students, students who didn't come from elite high schools and students who aren't majoring in your field. In other words, the majority of your classroom can benefit from a clear, comprehensible statement of what makes for an A, C or F paper as far as sources, arguments, mechanics and the like. And of course, rubrics needn't be limited to paper grading, but can be employed for a variety of other assignments or even participation grades. Other potential benefits include reducing grading time by avoiding writing the same thing dozens of times, as well as keeping a large teaching staff on the same page."

--Inside Higher Ed

Acclaim for the first edition:
"Easy to read, delectable teaching and learning aids that can be adapted and employed with almost any post-secondary course, at any level...a handy resource with excellent potential for cultivating interdisciplinary relationships, and an aid that extends the location of education beyond the classroom."-- (04/01/2007)

Acclaim for the first edition:
"Dannelle Stevens and Antonia Levi, do an outstanding job of defining rubrics and explaining how to create and use them in different contexts. The book is peppered with ancedotes drawn from their own teaching experiences, and the mechanistic aspects of rubric construction are presented in a straightforward, converstational style. Before describing rubric construction, the authors note that although it can be time consuming and intimidating at first, the process becomes easier with experience, particularly through adaptation of existing rubrics for other uses.... This book, which is enjoyable to read, serves as an essential resource for higher education faculty by highlighting the important role of rubrics and detailing the design and implementation process."-- (01/01/2006)

"Students consistently tell us that good teachers give them constant feedback and are clear about their expectations and agendas. One way to accomplish both these purposes is by using well-constructed rubrics.Introduction to Rubrics provides a wonderfully helpful guide to creating rubrics that provide timely and detailed feedback and encourage the development of critical thinking. For teachers seeking to improve how they communicate the essentials of learning to students it will be an invaluable resource"--Stephen D. Brookfield, Distinguished University Professor "University of St. Thomas "

Acclaim for the first edition:
"Introduction to Rubrics offers an excellent guide to those student affairs professionals who have articulated clear intended learning and development outcomes and sought ways to measure the degree to which students are mastering those outcomes."--Journal of College Student Development

From the Foreword:
"A rubric, the authors emphasize, is a tool. And their book itself is a wonderful tool for exploring how to use rubrics as tools. For a long time, I have been recommending the first edition to faculty in workshops I lead. I can recommend this second edition with even greater enthusiasm, because it does so much more, and does it so intelligently.
The authors offer advice about all the surrounding situations and problems that may accompany rubrics: how to get students involved in rubrics, how to use rubrics with TAs, how to collaborate with other faculty in constructing common rubrics, and how to use rubrics that someone else has constructed. The book focuses on rubrics but offers a great deal of advice about good teaching, good collaboration, and good assessment. In short, this book is a great tool."-- (05/01/2012)

Acclaim for the first edition:
"Introduction to Rubrics has two vital things in its favor. First, it is short, and second, it is packed with useful information. This book is an ideal resource for those who are just beginning to think about using rubrics. However, it is also very useful for those of us who already use rubrics but need to refine our applications or get new ideas about how to optimize their use. There are other resources on the Web that have many more rubric samples, such as Rubistar, but the strength of Stevens and Levi's resource is that it is geared exclusively to college-level teaching, where a site such as Rubistar is not."--Currents in Teaching and Learning
