Thinking about the Givercraft experience, grading/assessment and reading other peoples blogs this week got me thinking how do we score creativity? According to Brookhart (2013), “As you might expect with such a broad concept as creativity, there’s no single formula that will always work. Start by helping students understand what creativity is, using rubrics, examples, and discussion about these.” Brookhart goes on to share a creativity rubric that can be found on this website: http://www.ascd.org/publications/educational-leadership/feb13/vol70/num05/Assessing-Creativity.aspx
Some of the other resources that I found interesting were:
How Can We Teach and Assess Creativity and Innovation in PBL? By John Larmer
Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! By Andrew Miller
Next year I am planning on going back into the regular education classroom. My goal is to incorporate more PBL and reflect on how I assess creativity. These resources will help me.
