Interview Assignment Rubric

‘A’ work: students will fully respond to each question with exceptional critical thinking.This means expounding thoughts beyond ‘I agree/disagree’. Responses will include supportive information to communicate thought/reasoning/argument/or perspective. I want to know the WHY behind your answer, not just a ‘yes/no’. These responses will also have minimal to no English or grammar errors.

‘B’ work: students will respond to each question, but not clearly expand their thoughts and ideas with critical thinking. This means expounding thought beyond ‘I agree/disagree’ responses with minimal supportive information. These responses will leave me hanging- they will not show me much about your thought process. These responses will have minimal grammar and English errors.

‘C and D’ work: students provide minimal responses without expanding thought. Example response: Yes, I do agree. (This response does not communicate critical thinking. These responses are fillers, and do not communicate much thought behind your answer. These responses will have many grammar and English errors.)
