Developing And Using Rubrics

This Foundational Concept can be found in the following module pages:

Rubrics make judging the quality of a product or performance less subjective and therefore more reliable than it might otherwise be. They contribute to greater objectivity by specifying the characteristics of responses that represent different levels of mastery. Their purpose is usually twofold – to provide specifications for students to follow in completing an assignment and to give guidance to the people who evaluate the completed work. Some rubrics are holistic in their perspective and others are analytic.
