Meg Swecker: Hi Everyone! Artifacts are beginning to roll in,so I know that you are staying busy. Please remember to review the elaborated rubric for each artifact before submitting it. It is a wonderful tool! Keep up the hard work ~ Meg :)

Meg Swecker: OK gang, it's time to get this wiki started!! We are all working on different rubrics, but there are a few hints I can share that may be helpful. I hope this will generate discusion within the group so that we can act as supports for one another. I met face2face with some EITC folks last week at ITRT camp, and when I told them how I evaluate a rubric, it seemed to help. Maybe it will help others in our group,too, so here goes!
Here are my steps to evaluation: I download all of your artifacts into a folder. I open another internet browser and open the BRETC evaluation guides for the rubric. I click on "view" and scroll down to the checklist on the bottom. This checklist is the first thing I verify.
Your reflection template is the first document I open. I review it and look for evidence that you've met the rubric. I then open your other artifacts and again, search to make sure you've met this checklist.
Once this step is complete, I head to the elaborated rubric that is provided by JMU. I review it and make sure that I can find evidence of its requirements in your artifacts.
If I can find the evidence I need that you've met the rubric, I say so, joyfully!
If something has been omitted, and that's easy to do because there's a bunch of stuff to hand in for each rubric, I try to explain what needs to be corrected or added.
So the best suggestions I can give to you are: 1. Use the forms provided within the evaluation guides and complete them thoroughly. 2. Review the checklist under "view" for the rubric you are working on and make sure you can answer YES to each of the listed criteria.
3. Before submitting, review the elaborated rubric to see if there is anything else you should add.
4. Proof read and spell check. This is a professional portfolio and we can't delete what is in it. 5. If you aren't sure you understand the rubric, email me and let's talk about it. I'd much rather spend the time making sure you understand what is require, than spending it typing what needs to be done after scoring it as "approaching". I like giving greens as much as you like getting them! If you have questions, let me know and I'll help you in any way that I can.
OK, seasoned EITC VCOPers, who else can add some tips for meeting the rubrics?

Meg Swecker: PS, don't forget to check the projects area. I'm going to start featuring different rubrics so we can talk about them. :)
