    Rubric III Scoring Guide

    Score Definition / Criteria
    3: An object is rated superior for the utility of materials designed to support teaching only if all of the following are true:
    • The object provides materials that are comprehensive and easy to understand and use.
    • The object includes suggestions for ways to use the materials with a variety of learners. These suggestions include materials such as "common error analysis tips" and "precursor skills and knowledge" that go beyond the basic lesson or unit elements.
    • All objects and all components are provided and function as intended and described. For example, the time needed for lesson planning appears accurately estimated, materials lists are complete, and explanations make sense.
    • For larger objects like units, materials facilitate the use of a mix of instructional approaches (direct instruction, group work, investigations, etc.).
    2: An object is rated strong for the utility of materials designed to support teaching if it offers materials that are comprehensive and easy to understand and use but falls short of "superior" for either one of two reasons:
    • The object does not include suggestions for ways to use the materials with a variety of learners (e.g., error analysis tips).
    • Some core components (e.g., directions) are underdeveloped in the object.
    1: An object is rated limited for the utility of materials designed to support teaching if it includes a useful approach or idea to teach an important topic but falls short of "strong" for either one of two reasons:
    • The object is missing important elements (e.g. directions for some parts of a lesson are not included)
    • Important elements do not function as they are intended to (e.g. directions are unclear or practice exercises are missing or inadequate). Teachers would need to supplement this object to use it effectively.
    0: An object is rated very weak or no value for the utility of materials designed to support teaching if it is confusing, contains errors, is missing importante elements, or is for some other reason simply not useful, in spite of an intention to be used as a support for teachers in planning or preparation.
    N/A This rubric is not applicable (N/A) for an object that is not designed to support teachers in planning and/or presenting subject matter. It may be possible that an educator could find an application for such an object during a lesson, but that would not be the intended use.
