I was in a meeting where a high school math teacher was sharing some of her
entries for NBPTS certification...
She had researched the use of Adrinka symbols and came up with a set of
stamps that she used to 'grade' /assess her student's work. If it was
something that they had accomplished it was one color - if it was something
they still needed to work on - another color.
She ended up packaging and selling through the University of Cincinnati... I
think. if you want more information let me know... I thought it was a good
For my middle school students I have used labels that list 3 or more
concepts/ideas that I am looking for (taken from the rubric), each has a
column 'great, satisfactory, needs work...' ) terminology changes... then I
stick the label on the back of the work, in the back of their sketchbook -
where ever. The sketchbook is nice because I have a set to refer to.
I have done it once or twice with younger kids - but with that age sometimes
I am assessing or evaluating what I do more than what they did!
