STEM Evaluation Rubric
The STEM Instructional Resource Evaluation rubric is a guide for the development and evaluation of instructional resources with STEM activities to be incorporated in school-based, work-based, family-based, community-based learning environments. The purpose of this rubric is to promote rich opportunities for development of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication (4C) skills through the use of quality, well-designed, and intentional instructional resources.
The rubric is simple – just four criteria – and can be used as a planning tool when creating new experiences, activities or lessons with youth. The rubric was developed to have application for all kinds and levels of teachers, parents, community partners and businesses. It can also be used to evaluate existing materials or activities to help identify where improvement can be made.
