Rubrics: Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Rubrics for Grading (And Other Things)

It seems as though people either love rubrics or hate them. Some appreciate the time that rubrics can save; others find them too restrictive and generic. This session, led by Catherine Miller, mathematics, and Susan Hill, CETL,  will explore the advantages and disadvantages of using rubrics for grading, which rubric is best for a task or project, examine a variety of different kinds of rubrics and discuss when using rubrics can be most beneficial to you and your students. 

The Strayer-Wood Theatre presents August: Osage County

When Weston family patriarch vanishes one hot summer night, his acid-tongued, pill-popping wife summons her grown daughters and their families to their Oklahoma homestead. Dinner is served, lies are told, and long-held family secrets are unflinchingly revealed. Tracy Letts’ comic tragedy exposes the emotional destruction that rips through generations if nothing stops its path. One of the most critically acclaimed plays of this century, August earned the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Tony Award for Best Play, and Drama Desk Award for Best New Play. Directed by alumna Angie Toomsen and featuring UNI faculty Richard Glockner and Cynthia Goatley.
