Rubric criteria
Mrs. Collier spent numerous instructional hours with students reading a text about peer pressure versus peer influence. The students then were given several questions to prompt their thinking and asked to discuss the text in groups and use their own background knowledge and experience to support how they felt about the questions asked. Mrs. Collier planned to ask the students to write several paragraphs about the text, and grade the paragraphs based on mechanics, a topic sentence, two supporting details, and the concluding sentence as a summative assessment.
Do the instructions and rubric criteria match? If not, what other items should Mrs. Collier add to the rubric?

No the assignment and the rubric do not match. The rubric should also have discussion with peers, background knowledge, and experience for supporting details. If Mrs. Collier planned to ask the students to write several paragraphs she should include the complete directions and expectations of the assignment in the beginning.

First of all Mrs. Collier needs to provide the rubric for the students prior to giving the assignment and the assessment. When providing the rubric prior to the assignment or assessment,it provides the students with a clear picture of the teacher's expectations. The rubric should have been provided and explained to the students to ensure that they had a clear understanding of what was expected.

No, I feel that the rubric reflect the questions that the students addressed while reading the book. As is the rubric is very general and needs to be more specific as to the information they gathered during their reading.

The rubric is not aligned to the task students were given. The students need to be asked how they have experienced peer pressure and peer influence in their own lives. Their writing should be graded on their ideas and how well they were able to provide examples of peer pressure and peer influences. The rubric should also include mechanics, organization, and supporting details but they should be worth less than the ideas section that needs to be added to the rubric.
