Editorial Reviews


"'This wonderfully compact introduction to rubrics will serve higher education teachers well regardless of discipline or level of instruction. Stevens and Levi take the reader through the process of constructing rubrics, varied forms of rubrics, and a multitude of ways to use rubrics. I especially applaud the student-centered approaches to rubric development. When departments or groups of faculty use rubrics as described in this book, they will indeed achieve the 'academic currency' sought today in higher education.' -- Amy Driscoll, director of Teaching, Learning and Assessment at California State University, Monterey Bay 'A total gap has long existed in higher education for a user's reference that aids in the important task of design and use of rubrics. Stevens and Levi are the first to step forward to fill this gap, which in itself would make the book a success. Its strengths are in the detail and extensive examples. As the title states, this is a book that emphasizes the tool and methods of use. It serves as a valuable resource for the new user in a content discipline and belongs in every faculty developer's library.' -- Edward Nuhfer, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning, Idaho State University. 'I was thrilled to come across this book, as there are so few texts out there that address the use of rubrics in the college classroom. Stevens and Levi have done a laudable job of conveying the rationale for using such a grading tool in higher education, and have provided, generously, many outstanding examples. What I find most compelling is that it is so much more than an introduction: Stevens and Levi provide an effective blueprint for the creation of one's own customized rubrics. This a much-needed new resource.' -- Adrielle A. Mitchell, Department of English, Nazareth College"

About the Author

Dannelle D. Stevens is a tenured professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Portland State University in Oregon where she has been since 1994. Her roots, however, are in the public school classroom where she taught middle school and high school social studies, language arts, and special education for 14 years across four school districts and three states. She received her master's from the University of Utah in 1983, and a doctorate in educational psychology from Michigan State in 1991. Before coming to PSU she taught at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Whether the topic is rubrics, journal writing, action research or academic writing, her work centers on how adults reflect on what they do and, then, act on those reflections. One of Dr. Stevens' underlying assumptions is that cognitive, social and emotional development does not end with the teenage years but continues through the lifetime. Besides over 75 conference presentations, she has written three books, all designed to impact development of her fellow faculty and, their students. Her first book, co-edited with Joanne Cooper, Tenure in the Sacred Grove: Issues and Strategies for Women and Minorities, (SUNY Press, 2002), was written to help faculty women and minorities negotiate the path to tenure. Introduction to Rubrics, now in its second edition, and co-authored with Antonia J. Levi, and Journal Keeping, co-authored with Joanne Cooper, are published by Stylus Publishing. In addition to teaching classes, she has taken on leadership positions in the department and campus-wide. In the Curriculum and Instruction Department, Dr. Stevens leads teacher licensure cohorts and coordinates the MA/MS program for experienced teachers. For the university at large, she works within the Center for Academic Excellence as faculty-in-residence for assessment. She is chair of the Institutional Assessment Council.

Antonia J. Levi is a professor of modern Japanese history who taught for many years in the University Studies Program at Portland State University. She is now retired, continuing to write about rubrics, Japanese animation, and the globalization of popular culture, and reinventing herself as a novelist in Vancouver, BC. She has served as an apprentice and mentor in Simon Fraser University’s Writer’s Studio and the Southbank Writer’s Program where she is exploring the possibilities for rubrics in enhancing work shopping experiences, evaluating and improving public performances, and developing other creative skills.
