Title

Development and Validation of a Discipline-Independent Research Product Rubric Alligned with the Research Skill Development Framework

Conference Tracks

Assessment and SoTL - Research

Abstract

The Quality Enhancement Plan at JCSU is focused on Undergraduate Research. Students will be producing many research products, the ultimate product is their Senior Investigative Paper (SIP). Individual programs have rubrics for the assessment of these SIPs and other products. We perceived the need for a single rubric that could be applied across disciplines that focused on the facets of research as described in the Research Skill Development Framework (RSDF), cross-referenced by the quality of the product. A rubric was drafted, piloted, and revised. A study involving 18 faculty reviewing 24 past SIPs was conducted to establish reliability and validity.
