This poster reports an ongoing project collaborated by a team of Chinese faculty who teach writing intensive (WI) courses that identify critical thinking as one of the assessment components during AY 2020-2021. We will exhibit the collaborations of (a) the process of the rubric development, (b) the integration of rubric in student’s essay assessment, and (c) the preliminary results from three courses that have piloted this rubric. We will also explore the possible promotion of this rubric to other Chinese faculty for their adaption to other WI courses, through which we may receive feedback so as to make it a more adaptable criterion for crucial thinking assessment, one of the most important institutional learning objective encompassed by the UHM campus wide.
