"Teachers and administrators from our region have appreciated Kay’s practical approach to rubric design. By utilizing her framework and process, a teacher can begin with one of our state standards and grade level indicators and walk away with a rubric that accurately assesses student learning. Educators have appreciated the multiple examples Kay cites from other states and Canada. Her work with us in our area has served as a catalyst for web-based cross-regional sharing of performance tasks, checklists, and rubrics between educators. Kay’s work fosters collaboration and honors teacher professionalism." Author: Julie Davis, Professional Development Director Published On: 2005-10-20
