Abstract
This study is an exploration into the effects of using a rubric to give daily feedback of student progress in the areas of participation, effort, work, behavior and organizational skills. Previous research suggested that a flexible system can be used to clarify learning goals, design instruction that addresses those goals, communicate goals to students, guide feedback on students? progress toward those goals, and judge final products in terms of the degree to which the goals were met (Andrade, 2005). Two students were assessed daily in each of the five categories using a flexible rubric grading system to see if their scores would improve over time. Results show that daily feedback, when used with a rubric, has a positive effect on scores in those categories.
