What is a Rubric?

  • A rubric is a guide listing specific criteria for grading academic papers, projects, activities, or tests.
  • Typically, in a table format, rubrics align grading criteria to levels of accomplishment and each level of accomplishment is assigned points.

What is a Rubric?

Rubrics help both students and teachers:

  • Rubrics help students understand what the teacher is looking for in a work product or activity, by clarifying goals and expectations.
  • Rubrics help teachers grade more accurately and consistently.
  • Rubrics also help teachers provide more meaningful feedback to students, because the feedback can easily be related to the areas where the student needs to improve.
  • Once a teacher gets accustomed to using rubrics, it becomes easier to see how to adjust instruction to help students improve their performance.

  • There are 2 general types of rubrics: analytic and holistic.
    • Analytic rubrics have a separate evaluation line for each criteria being graded in the assignment.
    • Holistic rubrics have more than one criteria for grading, but they are lumped together for evaluation purposes.
  • Analytic rubrics are considered best for most academic purposes.

Notice that the holistic rubric does not have specific criteria for grading. Analytic rubrics are much better for teaching and learning because they help everyone to understand expectations and to know which areas need improvement.

  • You can create a rubric in 4 steps.
  • Click each step to learn more.

Creating a Rubric

Menu

Ask yourself,

  • What are the knowledge and skills the assignment is designed to assess?
  • What do I want my students to demonstrate to me?
  • Jot this information down.

  • State the learning goals so they are measurable.
  • Do this by beginning each goal with a measurable verb.
  • The table will help you find best verbs to match the level of learning for your students and the activity.
  • View the full-size Bloom's Taxonomy Action Words (PDF).

Step 1 – Establish Learning Goals

Menu

Consider both the work and the soft skills.

  • Soft skills may include things like teamwork, participation, reliability/ accountability.
  • For the work itself consider the products and the specific attributes of the products.

Ask yourself,

  • What are the component parts (criteria) that will make up the grade?
  • Jot them down.

Step 2 – Brainstorm Criteria

Menu

Examples of performance levels:

  • Fair, Good, Excellent
  • Needs Improvement, Meets Expectations, Exceeds Expectations
  • Beginning, Developing, Accomplished, Exemplary
You may want to start adding your information to a table.

  • Think about the performance levels you’d like to attach to the criteria.
  • Create 3–5 performance levels.
  • Allocate points for each performance level.

Step 3 – Establish Performance Levels

Menu

This may be the most time-consuming part of creating a rubric.Draft observable characteristics of student’s work to differentiate between the performance levels for each criteria.The genius of rubrics is that they are descriptive and not evaluative. They can be used to evaluate, but the operating principle is that you match the performance to the description, rather than "judge" it. Thus, rubrics are only as good as the criteria selected and the descriptions of the  performance  levels under each.
