Abstract

Sheridan College students from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year of the Child and Youth Care (CYC) program participated in an innovative project to co-create a rubric for self-reflection assignments which is a significant skill in both academic and professional practice. Students co-designed this self-reflection rubric for use throughout the program for assessment in all self-reflection assignments rather than having a different rubric for every assignment. The students went through many steps to ensure the rubric had intra-rater and inter-rater reliability. We followed rubric best practices for criteria, levels, and descriptors. The extensive design thinking process of discussion and consultation resulted in a rubric trusted by the students themselves. We used very specific language, images, definitions, and examples to ensure all students, including international students and English language learning students would understand the requirements of the rubric. Finally, not only did the students create the rubric, but they also created the presentation and PowerPoint slides to be understandable to all of their peers before they presented it.
