OAKLAND, Calif., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Turnitin, the leader in originality checking and online grading, today announced Teaching Tools, an online resource for instructors at all levels to share rubrics and lesson plans with their colleagues. Teaching Tools already has more than 40 items, including rubrics aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and lesson plans in disciplines ranging from politics to health sciences.
The Teaching Tools resource is available at:
"Of the nearly 17 million papers instructors graded in Turnitin last year, 30 percent were graded using rubrics," said Jason Chu, education director at Turnitin. "With Teaching Tools, we're providing a way for instructors to both share the rubrics and lesson plans they've developed and gather valuable materials to apply in their own class work. Plus, with the launch of our Grade Anything functionality, instructors are now able to evaluate student work across the curriculum for any type of assignments—presentations, science, math and more."
"The easily accessible repository of sample rubrics and assignments offers a very practical resource for instructors looking for ideas, and who don't want to waste time reinventing pedagogical wheels," said Dr. Brian Spitzberg, Senate Distinguished Professor at San Diego State University and a Teaching Tools contributor.
All items submitted are published under a Creative Commons license, which allows others to use, copy, distribute, and adapt the work.
