Instructors - Managing Rubrics

What is a Rubric?

A rubric is a great tool for Instructors. It is a simple way to set up a grading criteria for assignments. Not only is this tool useful for instructors, it is helpful for learners as well. A rubric defines in writing what is expected of the learners to get a particular grade on an assignment.

Key concepts

  • A good rubric also describes levels of quality for each of the criteria.
  • These levels of performance may be written as different ratings (e.g., Excellent, Good, Needs Improvement). Rubrics help learners and instructors define "quality."
  • Rubrics reduce the time instructor spend grading learners work and makes it easier for instructor to explain to learners why they got the grade and what they can do to improve.
