In the summer of 2016 three teachers from the school center were actively working on the evaluation by rubrics with the aim of creating the most necessary for our respective subjects and also with the intention of sharing them with the rest of the teaching team of our institution.

During this teamwork, we created 7 rubrics: cooperative work, group presentation, individual presentation, reflection, written work, attitude, and the last one to evaluate debates.

The design of these rubrics was done with a free rubric tool for Google Apps for Education (GAFE), after that we discover Additio App as a digital gradebook for teachers and because we also planned to use that tool to perform Coevaluation and Self-evaluation.

In September 2016 and after introducing the Additio App tool to the other fellow teachers, we decided to move our seven rubrics to the digital gradebook and then share them with the rest of the teaching team.

The three teachers distributed the work with a simple “copy and paste” of the rubrics from the old tool to Additio App and shared them with us through the application.

Once in my digital gradebook I already had all the rubrics, I created a group-class with my own name. This group called “Bego” serves me to see in my schedule not only the classes I have with my respective groups of students, but to see in my schedule other working hours as guards, hours of tutorials, department, … .. In this group I have A series of “fictitious” students who precisely correspond with the teachers of my center who decided to join Additio App and to whom I gave training at the beginning of the course on the application.

In this group “Bego” I only have one tab to which I have called RUBRICS and in which I have put as many columns as rubrics I have configured in my application. That is, I have a tab only with columns configured all as rubrics, each corresponding to the rubrics we have designed to share in our center. Why did I do this? Because this allows me to “share structure of the group” with the teaching team in a very simple way and in a single step, everyone can have all the rubrics designed and then select which one to use and which does not.

This process saves a lot of work for my teachers because the rubrics are already designed and should only, if they want to adapt them to their own needs and / or peculiarities.

Our rubrics are configured with different number of rows and columns, we use the mean as type of result and different weights in the rows.

Additio App allows us to make a much more comfortable, quick and efficient evaluation thanks to the rubrics, since with the tablet, mobile and even computer we can mark cells in the rubrics and easily obtain the weighted and final grades of each student.

Before rubric evaluation was an arduous and overly complex task, now, with Additio App, hetero-evaluation teaching using the rubrics is fast and simple. A marvel.

Thanks Additio App.
