Tips for Effectively Implementing Grading Rubrics 1. Tell students that you will be using grading rubrics at the beginning of the course. Then remind them. 2. Review the rubric(s) with your students when you explain the assignment. Answer clarifying questions. 3. Provide sample papers or products along with a completed grading rubric where appropriate.
4. Use the same language that is used in the rubric when providing feedback. 5. Highlight what the student did well in one color and what needs improved in another color. 6. Return the paper or product along with the completed rubric.
