InnerOrbit's 3-Dimensional Rubrics* give educators both flexibility and precision in scoring summative, open response student work! In this article, we'll explore 3 ways you can leverage these rubrics in your classroom or in your PLC to take your NGSS game to the next level.

*To learn more about the features of these 3D rubrics, check out the video below.

3 Recommendations to Leverage InnerOrbit's 3D Rubrics:

Recommendation #1: Give a Common 1-Question Assessment and Collaboratively Score in Your PLC

Choose a focus standard. Then, search for that standard on InnerOrbit, pick a phenomenon, and finally select ONE juicy open-ended question (they'll be labeled "summative").

Then, have your team all have students take this common 1-question assessment (How do I assign assessments made by other teachers?). At your next PLC meeting, watch this quick video about InnerOrbit's 3-dimensional rubrics, then spend time scoring student work! Have a quick debrief with your team, using the "What do you notice?" and "What do you wonder?" sharing stems.

Recommendation #2: Hide student names to screenshare exemplar work

In the Grading window, click the "Review" button in the top right:

Then, click the "Hide Student Names" button:

Take screenshots or screenshare these exemplar responses for a quick whole class activity! Ask students what they notice between different responses. Record those noticings as strategies on a chart paper to use for revisions or on other questions in the future!

Recommendation #3: Filter results by dimension for small group support

Above the list of student names, click the drop down menu. Select a specific dimension to sort the student scores by, like Science and Engineering Practice (SEP):

Pull students in small groups by score on specific dimensions for targeted support!
