The videos did not load for each of the segments. The one video that did load was reviewing a leadership outcome. I think an outcome related to a core subject might provide better direction. Also, the rubric examples were very subjective and not very explanatory for the student or instructor on what is expected at each level to earn the points displayed.

Thank you for letting me know about the videos not loading. This was a very basic version that I developed in 2013. Here is a link to the updated version (2014) : It is also part of a Course ePortfolio of Global eLearning Courses which you can access here: I hope this is helpful.
