@CabriniSOE @CabriniSOE Thank you for the feedback. Community rubrics are so important to course well-being and psychological orientation to course climate. I am happy to send you a sample of a community rubric or you can visit https://t.co/mF1MfleF3B and download a sample there.

@EWhitteck What is interesting about this topic is a lot of ethnic perceptions of "failure" are linked to business topics such as entrepreneurial endeavors and project management not academics. But if there is something out there, I would love to read it. I feel a research study coming on.
