I believe this rubric was appropriate for the presentations and for further use. The rubric cloven our interdisciplinary skills of mathematical knowledge, use of technology and pedagogy which, allows us to clearly specify the needs for improvement based on students and professors ratings. My only concern is as we progress through the course can we define ourselves using the same rubric? Do we need to modify it to fit the needs of our growing technology based activities? The rubric was fairly simple to use. All one needed to do was assess a student’s levels such as unsatisfactory, basic etc. The rubric enumerates the fundamental to the credible work in details. I felt confident assigning students’ scores because of how simple it was to tell the difference between levels. If I was to change anything about this rubric for a presentation I would only further specify details that I felt can be articulated. While presenting my own work I did not take use of the rubric. I based my project on what I felt the student’s needed to understand in order to understand my lesson. This did not surprise me but, I am content that it is on the rubric, presentation structure. My former educators have used rubrics before and it assisted me in selecting positive presentation skills and skills in need of improvement. The form again was another simple tool select a button provide extra feedback the end. I would not alter the form I would accumulate each students scores and provide a graph of their progress .
