13 Apr Students formulate success criteria by comparing
To encourage learning, it is important that students understand the criteria on which they will be assessed. It is important to pay attention to this at the start of the teaching period so that they know what is expected of them and what quality of work means.
This practical contribution describes a project within Zuyd University of Applied Sciences where students designed an assessment rubric for a professional product. To arrive at the success criteria, students assessed sample products using the Comparative Judgement (CJ) method. In these comparisons, they always formulated criteria.
The success criteria formulated in this way were then used to construct the rubric. This approach led to a better understanding of the criteria and required standards, a greater sense of ownership of the criteria, and a better understanding and higher acceptance of the final assessment.
