Using Rubrics to Enhance Extension Program Planning and Evaluation: A Health Insurance Literacy Example

A session at Priester National Health Extension Conference

Tuesday 16th April, 2013

1:30pm to 2:30pm (PST)

Rubrics are criterion-referenced tools that provide a basis for judgment of a particular type of work or performance. They describe standards for assessment. These assessment tools are an untapped resource for Extension programming and evaluation. For emerging areas of Extension education, such as health insurance literacy, rubrics can be particularly beneficial both in creating and evaluating programs, curricula and educational materials. Two rubrics developed for health insurance literacy education will be presented and discussed. Participants will have the opportunity to practice utilizing the rubrics and will also learn how the rubrics could be modified for use with other educational programs.

Bonnie Braun and Nicole Finkbeiner, University of Maryland
