Rubrics are a set of clear explanations or criteria used to help staff, faculty and students focus on what is valued in a work project, subject, topic, or activity (Russell, & Airasian, 2012). Strong components of a well-developed rubric include aspects of a task which may be considered when making a judgment about performance on that task, different weightings for different criteria and levels of attainment (which may include grade level descriptors).
Depending on the project or assignment, users can select between 2 different kinds of rubrics, those being descriptive and holistic. During this presentation, we will go into detail on how to develop a reusable and efficient rubric, in addition to providing examples of rubrics currently used in the office and classroom.
