A rubric is a scoring tool that lists the criteria for student work and articulates levels of quality for each criterion. It can help in communicating your expectations to students while also helping you in assessing student work fairly and efficiently. They can also provide students with informative feedback on their strengths and weaknesses, and prompt students to reflect on their own work.

In this workshop, we discuss key features of a quality rubric, present some examples of rubric for assessing student work. You will then have an opportunity to use the steps discussed to construct a rubric for one of your assessment tasks.
