Instructional, Positive, Kid- Friendly Rubrics

This resource is the result of a collaborative project by Ontario educators to address the three types of evaluation (assessment for, as and of learning). The three rubrics created address the assessment and evaluation requirements in the 2010 “Growing Success” document as well as providing students with a means to assess their own learning with the Assessment “As” learning rubric. The included “Bump it Up” activities supports students to find ways to use teacher feedback to improve their own learning. This will also support new teachers and OTs in developing their assessment practice.
