Write up a class blogging plan, taking into account the ‘dos and don’ts’ of class blogging. Write up an assessment rubric. What will you be measuring? Writing? Technological competence? Appearance of the blog?
How do you currently assess students’ work? Will that change in the blogging environment or is what you’re looking for still the same? Will you have to assess new things, such as website design or succinctness of student posts?
