  1. 1. What is a Rubric? Image Source Link
  2. 2. What is a Rubric? A scoring scale used to assess student performance along a task-specific set of criteria. For Students: For Instructors: ● it outlines what is expected ● it indicates relative weights ● it diagnoses the quality of student work ● it informs future work ● it helps ensure that instruction leads to desired outcomes ● it aids reliability (and consistency) in scoring ● it justifies grades
  3. 3. Parts of a Rubric Criteria Levels of Achievement: 2-4 Descriptors
  4. 4. Levels of Achievement Define the levels of performance and often have points associated with them. Terms to use in measuring range/scoring levels ● Needs Improvement...Satisfactory...Good...Exemplary ● ● ● ● Beginning...Developing...Accomplished...Exemplary Needs work...Good...Excellent Novice...Apprentice...Proficient...Distinguished Numeric scale ranging from 1 to 5, for example Ways to calculate: ● Points (1, 2, 3 ,4) ● Point Range (0-1, 2-3, 3-4) ● Percent (0, 50, 75, 100) ● Percent Range (0-25, 25-50)
  5. 5. Criteria Describe the conditions that any performance must meet to be successful. Depending on your assignment these may include: ● Purposes, Goals, Desired results: ● ● Explains… Includes 2… ● Work Quality/Craftsmanship: ● ● Creativity Use of tool ● Methods: ● ● Essay includes… Presentation includes… ● Content: ● ● Grammar Structure ● Sophistication of the performance: ● ● Thorough discussion Includes new ideas
  6. 6. Criteria Example • This allows for a due date to be set, but to include expectations for participation such as an initial post and responses to others. • This allows the instructor to set specific expectations for written expression. • This allows the instructor to indicate the length of the post as well as any expectations regarding inclusions such as connections to material and references. • This allows the instructor to indicate how the students are to “behave” in the online environment regarding their posts and responses. • This allows the instructor to more clearly define the expectations for the included posts and responses regarding the overall understanding of the topic.
  7. 7. Descriptors Specifics for each Level of Achievement. Once you have decided what constitutes a high scoring assignment, work your way down. Task Requirements All Most Some Very Few or none Frequency Always Usually Some Rarely Accuracy No Few Some Frequent Comprehensibility Always Almost Always Gist Isolated Content Fully developed Adequately Partially Minimally Vocabulary Broad Adequate Limited Very Limited
  8. 8. Descriptors You can see here how the instructor defines the levels of achievement, utilizing the descriptors: Does not address, Addresses some, Addresses all, and Addresses all in depth Each descriptor must clearly describe the expectations for that level.
