Great Schools Partnership

Determining Proficiency Levels and Establishing Scoring Criteria

Webinar Date: March 3, 2015

Presenters: Mark Kostin, associate director + Katie Thompson, senior associate

Once educators in districts have completed the important task of identifying graduation standards and performance indicators, the next step in our Proficiency-Based Simplified model is to establish scoring criteria. Informing and supporting the clear articulation of what student work looks like at each of the four distinct performance levels on each performance indicator is a vital component to the eventual design of assessment tasks and unit design.

During this webinar, we will share the Great Schools Partnership’s approach to writing performance indicator levels – the backbone of the rubrics that are necessary in the implementation of proficiency-based learning. We will share guidelines and protocols designed to help educators create their own scoring criteria as well as provide a handful of examples.
