    I find it challenging to craft descriptors for beauty whenever I craft rubrics for my students’ artistic/ literary works. How do you regard what is beautiful in assessment, and how do you render it in the descriptor of your rubrics?

    At first glance, I would say WOW in all artistic/literary works of my learners. With your appreciation, they would be encouraged or motivated to do more. But for the assessment of their performance output I am always using rubrics which is approved among my learners. This is to show fair assessment.

    If I happen to evaluate the beauty of student works, I would ask them to tell me why and how they perceive their works and their peers’ works as beautiful in addition to my rubric involving them co-constructing the criteria like @nel mentioned before.

    Through the use rubrics. This will guide the evaluator to be objective

    I usually consider and include the beautiful insights of my students in the rubrics. I always ask them to tell most of what they have understood from the literary work before I finally give them the rating they deserve to receive. I always wanted to see their unique ways of finding out the real meaning and beauty of the literary work. I am happy to see them working collaboratively with each other rather than me working for them when we have discussions in the literature.
