Webinar on Rubric Creation Coming Up
NATA
Jamie Mansell, PhD, LAT, ATC, is presenting "Creating an Effective Rubric for Classroom and Clinical Experiences" at 11 a.m. CT on July 15. Rubrics have been described as an assessment tool that saves time grading, conveys objective feedback and promotes student learning. In this session, participants will look at how rubrics can accomplish these three worthwhile objectives, as well as explore their limitations and engage in the process of rubric development. Within athletic training education, there are several opportunities that lend themselves to the use of rubrics. Not only can they be effective for written, oral and group assignments, but during practical and clinically-based assessments, rubrics can be used by multiple instructors, preceptors and peers with similar outcome measurements.

ESPN
Julius Randle has seen the replay. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward drives to the basket in the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' season opener, past Houston Rockets big man Donatas Motiejunas, jumps and passes as the defense closes in on him.

Study: Rough Play is Riskier Than Heading in Youth Soccer
The Associated Press via The Washington Post
Heading takes the heat in youth soccer, but limiting rough play might be a better way to prevent concussions and other injuries, a nine-year study of U.S. high school games suggests. More than 1 in 4 concussions studied occurred when players used their heads to hit the ball. But more than half of these heading-related concussions were caused by collisions with another player rather than with the ball.

Ear Injury May Resemble Concussion
The Washington Post via HeraldNet
The dangers of concussions, caused by traumatic stretching and damage to nerve cells in the brain that lead to dizziness, nausea and headache, has been well documented. But ear damage that is sometimes caused by a head injury has symptoms so similar to the signs of a concussion that doctors may misdiagnose it and administer the wrong treatment.
