As facilitators of learning, we must consider how we can effectively communicate to our students their current progress, future goals, and the desired outcomes of their learning journey. One of our primary goals as educators then is to help students understand their learning path and foster a sense of purpose through a comprehensive assessment approach.
Assessment for Learning (AFL) is a leading approach to inform and shape student learning in the IGCSE classroom. Feedback is one of the most crucial elements in Assessment for Learning (AFL) as it helps students understand their learning goals and work towards them intentionally.
Rubrics are a powerful tool for teachers as they provide clear guidelines while delivering feedback meaningfully. Through well-defined rubrics, teachers can deliver task-focused, timely, specific, clear and unbiased feedback. As teachers, you can support student learning by sharing specific feedback through clearly articulated success criteria. This makes it easy for your students to understand what successful work looks like for each task they are doing.
