Rubrics for Assessment & Selection at the Elementary Level - Presentation

Rubrics for Assessment & Selection at the Elementary Level - Presentation

With Chris Bigenho, Director of Educational Technology, Greenhill School

While all schools serving young children have a process in place for the selection of students joining their community in these early years, they are often complex, time consuming and embedded with issues related to consistency, interpretation, bias, and validity. This session will provide a brief review of findings of a study related to the "play testing" sessions found in most early childhood admissions processes. We will then explore how rubrics might help mitigate some of the embedded issues. Participants are encouraged to bring any rubrics and information related to their "play testing" activities. During the session, we will work collaboratively to revise and refine rubrics in an effort to improve this part of the admissions process.
