ABSTRACT: The basic assessment rubric can be modified into an instructional instrument to improve the mastery of and the assessment efficiency of the GIS lesson objectives. The rubric is presented as an Excel Spreadsheet. The TASKs are arranged in sequential order to achieve lesson completion and may include specific directives to clarify textbook provided instructions. The POINT values reflect the level of effort to complete the TASK. Each task has a unique Reference Area number used to effectively communicate compliance with the TASK objective. A Frequently Missed column alerts students to TASKS that might need additional scrutiny. Anecdotal data from discussions with students has led to the conclusion that this rubric modification has both instructional effectiveness and efficient assessment of lessons used for regular and dual credit college GIS courses.
