Creating Grading RubricsWays to Ease Your Grading Burdens Andrea Bewick, Julie Hall & Lisa Yanover Flex Day, 2010 What Are Rubrics? A rubric is basically a system for deciding how to describe the quality of a variety of academic skills. You can create rubrics to measure almost any skill, from something as formal as a research essay/project to something as informal as a smallgroup discussion. What Are Rubrics? Rubrics can also be used in a variety of ways. For example, they can be used to provide formative feedback, to determine student grades, or as data

for assessment of performance on a specific student learning outcome. What are Rubrics? Rubrics are a way of translating the qualitative into the quantitative Capella (2010). Rubrics allow for more objectivity in grading versus subjectivity. A rubric is not only an evaluative tool but a teaching tool that lets learners know specifically what they need to do to achieve a good performance in the course Capella (2010). What is being assessed in the

rubric? Specific skills of the assignment Assessment criterion by which the skill(s) will be assessed Total points available to a student per each skill by each criterion they achieve. The total points are then assigned according to the rubric Capella (2010). Rubrics can be used to: Communicate expectations about what counts as high-quality work; Encourage students to assess their own work; Assign grades to student assignments and exams; Assess specific student learning outcomes by departments for evaluation of curriculum Types of Rubrics Holistic Rubric This rubric consists

of a set of descriptors to generate a single, global score for the entire work Analytic Rubric Comprised of a set of focused holistic rubrics for specific components to be evaluated independently. The individual scores are then combined for a total grade. Examples of Holistic Rubrics The English 90 rubric used by the English Department to score the English 90 Proficiency Exam. Individual rubrics developed to assess

specific essay assignments Course rubrics used to assess specific skill sets within a course as part of the assessment of specific SLOs. Examples of Analytic Rubrics Individual rubrics used to assess specific skills sets by awarding points to each set. Rubrics used by students to assess whether specific skills are bring demonstrated in the work of their peers (this usually takes the form of a checklist).

To be effective, a rubric must be used. It must be reliable: It is reliable if qualified assessors applying it to the same piece of work come up with similar scores for similar work, regardless of the amount of time between assessments Capella (2010).
