The Danielson Framework for Teaching is very comprehensive. Each rubric component has component elements (listed as the criteria when aligning artifacts as well as the yellow box to the left of the rubrics on forms), leveled descriptive overview language (in each rubric level on forms), AND Critical Attributes for each level that can be used as a ‘checklist’ of look-fors to guide feedback, growth, and scoring (the checkboxes on forms). The other rubrics do not have descriptive level language, only a list of leveled Descriptors (like look-fors) that are used like the Critical Attributes to guide feedback, growth, and scoring.
At least one of the Wisconsin developed rubrics (LMS) opted not to list the leveled descriptors as individually selectable pieces on forms. DPI consultants in each of these areas are considering this year (16-17), and in some cases additionally next school year (17-18), as a pilot year and welcome feedback regarding clarity of descriptor language and rubric usability for quality feedback. Feedback received users across the state may be used to revise the rubrics.
