InterPro - Teaching and Learning - Creating Rubrics and Scoring Guides

The following document provides information on how to create and use rubrics in your course.
Benefits of using grading and evaluation criteria:
  • save time 
  • communicate expectations to students
  • create transparency with students about how their work is being evaluated and graded
  • increase consistent and equity in evaluation across a course
  • easily identify patterns in student performance
  • empower students to self and peer-review their own work

Getting started with Rubrics

  • choose 1-2 assignments to start
  • consider creating a rubric for larger assessments that are time intensive to grade and may need clearer expectations (e.g. team project, final presentation, etc.)
  • consider creating rubrics for assessments that repeat throughout the term (e.g. discussion forum responses)

How to Create a Rubric

  • identify the assessment to use the rubric
  • identify the learning outcomes to be demonstrated in this assessment - these become the evaluation criteria 
  • identify the levels of achievement by which you will evaluate the demonstrated skills, knowledge
