Create rubrics to grade complicated assignments so that both you and your students have a better understanding of what quality work looks like.

  • A rubric describes expectations for an assignment and usually includes descriptions of performance levels for each expectation.
  • Rubrics can make designing and grading assignments—especially complicated or open-ended assignments—much easier, fairer, and more effective.
  • It can be helpful to give students rubrics before they complete an assignment because they can be used for self-assessment while students work on the task.
  • Check out this example of a "computer programming grading rubric" for some guidance.
  • When making your own rubrics, the Rubistar website can be useful.
