Integrative knowledge assignment guide and rubric

Quick start

The integrative knowledge (ILO3) assignment guide and rubric were designed to the improve student performance on tasks for which stronger application of integrative knowledge will help students produce better work. Use the assignment guide questions to determine where more specificity and guidance is (or is not) needed for students to understand how to do well on the task. Use the rubric as a guide for creating or improving course- or program-level rubrics that help students understand expectations and help educators evaluate student performance. Assignment guide questions and rubric descriptors should be modified to fit the specific course or program context. It is not expected that in all cases a single task will address all components of the guide and rubric; rather, educators should focus on those components most relevant to the learning they want students to demonstrate. Collaborative development and use of a program-level rubric can promote a shared understanding of integrative learning and how to help students develop and demonstrate it in manner appropriate to the program's context.
