ADB and Special Drawing Right

Design TWO scoring rubrics, discuss FERPA privacy issues

Can you help me get started on this???

Design TWO scoring rubrics
1. The holistic rubric should include descriptors for the quality of the overall paper. (List what a 4 paper looks like as a whole, a 3 paper, and a 2 paper) This is all assumed that you are grading on a four-level tier. Instead you could describe what an A paper looks like, a B paper looks like, etc. The point for a holistic rubric is you grade the paper as a WHOLE. All descriptors are listed underneath the score.
2. The rating scale rubric should include specific descriptors for spelling/grammar/punctuation, organization, content, and any other items you want to include. A rating scale rubric will list each of the above characteristics and how you can earn X amount of points for each. Think of it as a graph list your descriptors on the X axis, the points possible (4, 3, 2, 1) or (Very Good, Good, Satisfactory, Needs Improvement) on the Y axis. Then, fill in the graph stating what do I need for content to earn a 4, a 3, a 2. Then do each descriptor separately.

It is parent conference time and it is required that you conference with each student's parents. Your classroom enrollment is 35 students. Some of the students are special needs students, LEP students or students who have some other type of disability. You would like to combine conferences by creating conference groups. Is this an appropriate strategy for conferencing? Why or Why not? Use FERPA as a basis for your argument.
