Discussion: Creating and Aligning Rubrics to Learning Experiences

            The lesson I chose was how to successfully start a PIV.  The lesson consists of nursing students learning how to start a PIV, the materials needed, and the importance of having a PIV.  The student will watch a video demonstration of the skill and practice during the break.  Additionally, the students are to record their own video on starting a PIV.  The objectives of the lesson include:

1.      Learners will analyze the importance of having a PIV.

2.      Learners will verbalize the items needed to start a PIV.

            Creating a rubric can be somewhat challenging for staff trying to include every objective or learning experience.  According to Isaacson (2009), creating a rubric can increase students’ critical thinking and provide a more realistic approach to self-evaluation.  When creating this rubric, I chose topics that would help the student create a great, meaningful presentation.  The students should know that points would be deducted for not speaking clearly and length of presentation.  Furthermore, they must provide rationales to support their statements in the video.  A purpose statement must be included along with materials needed for the skill.  If all components are met, the student will receive full credit.  However, the rubric explains how one would lose points if some components of the presentation were missing.  I would use a holistic approach when creating the rubric. 

            Holistic rubrics are use for evaluating assignments that may be difficult to split up into separate parts for scoring, such as oral presentations, where the grade may be more reflective of an overall accomplishment of goals (Truemper, 2004).  Since I chose a holistic rubric, I will focus on evaluating the quality of the presentation.  A score will be given by the amount of points earned.

RubiStar is a fairly well-known website that allows educators to quickly and easily create rubrics. Educators may choose to access rubrics shared by other educators, modify general RubiStar templates, or create their own rubric. Though RubiStar does allow users to create and export templates without using the free registration, it is highly recommended that you create an account. This will allow you to save, review, and edit your rubrics.
