Philosophy

As the faculty of San Diego Jewish Academy, we believe the following rubric illustrates the traits that will make you a successful learner. This type of assessment tool encourages students to emphasize the process of learning as opposed to making their primary focus the pursuit of points to get a good grade.

Your grade will be determined by achievement in the areas below.

  • creating appropriate goals, focus, or topic areas; self-motivated.
  • collecting and ordering information that fulfills goals; using time wisely in class.
  • presenting that information with clarity, grace; revision and editing are apparent.
  • taking risks and showing initiative.
  • Participating, voluntarily and when called on, in collaborative projects and activities (class discussions, response groups, peer editing, readings, email responses).
  • clearly reflecting on your learning using metacognitive tools such as asking questions, problem-solving, adjusting your time management, record-keeping, note-taking, or organization to be successful as a learner.
  • up-to-date with required assignments: assignments (you must have completed ALL assignments to earn an "A" in course)
  • Completing assignments with care, quality, and insight: points, %
