Student Assessment - Rubric


Why use rubrics?

In many cases, rubrics are used to delineate consistent criteria for grading. Because the criteria are public, a rubric allows teachers and students to evaluate criteria, which can be complex and subjective.

A rubric can also provide a basis for self-evaluation, reflection, and peer review. When used as part of a formative, student-centered approach to assessment, rubrics have the potential to help students develop understanding and skill, as well as make dependable judgments about the quality of their own work. It is a means of communicating expectations for an assignment, providing focused feedback on works in progress, and grading final products.
