Project Details


Considering that there is currently no reliable empirical support related to the use of rubrics for the elaboration and evaluation of quality presentations in basic sciences, an innovative pedagogical experimentation proposal is described, whose purpose is to identify the potential of the rubric for presentations in Basic Sciences (PCB) -elaborated by the researchers of this work, based on theoretical references and their experience in the small group classroom-, as an appropriate resource for the evaluation of scientific presentations. For this purpose, slides generated by first semester medical students in the AIAS-Biosciences course will be used, which will be evaluated by experts in the light of the PCB rubric, subsequently reviewed by undergraduate students in natural sciences who will fill out the scientific information questionnaire of the RAE (ICR) and, finally, the correlation between the score obtained with the rubric and the results of the questionnaire will be determined.
If an association is found between the PCB and ICR scores, there would be empirical support for the role of the PCB rubric as a guide for students to elaborate quality written presentations from which, in addition, suitable scientific information is obtained. Likewise, the PCB rubric will be a useful classroom resource for teachers in that they will have scientifically supported evaluation parameters, thus transcending the intuition that they are not able to use them.
