There are many, but these are the ones we feel are most important

Objective evaluation of Key Competencies because:

-what a student or group knows

-what they know how to do with this knowledge and

-to what extent

… are specified and made tangible.

As everything is as flexible and adaptable as the Teacher wishes, depending on his or her classroom situation and of individual’s needs, different levels of ability are taken into account
Effective feedback as variations between what is achieved and what was expected are quickly identified in order to take appropriate action.

4. Advantages of the Macmillan Rubrics Generator

Reduction in preparation time as we provide you with ready – made texts for Content, Learning Outcomes and Achievement Levels

Reduction of the risk of the process becoming long a time-consuming: Macmillan exams have been competency-based for many years now. The Macmillan Rubrics Generator allows competency-based evaluation of projects, group work, excursions, etc.

Skills blocks, eg. Writing comprehension, linguistic areas, etc.

Contents associated with these blocks: strategies, socio-cultural aspects, grammar and semantic content, etc.
Learning outcomes related to these and to the Skills blocks are provided along with texts to describe four levels of achievement.

The risk of standardization is minimized as the Macmillan Rubrics generator allows rubrics to be completely tailor-made for each learner or group.

5. Basic guidelines for creating a rubric:

Think of a specific project and level you want to evaluate

Make a simple rubric with just one or items to evaluate for a whole class.
If you are skilled or have already used a rubric-generating tool:

  • Make a rubric for a task and a group
  • Edit, change or delete content and learning outcomes according to your classroom situation
  • Create your own contents and standards.
