Create Your Own Rubric (Faculty Only)


A rubric is a set of guidelines that helps make assessing student work more objective and consistent by listing criteria for "what counts." Creating a good rubric is not easy and often requires several iterations. During this workshop, several faculty members will share their experiences with rubrics. Rubric development techniques will then be shared and examples provided. Finally, you will have time to begin creating your own rubric.
