Designing Rubrics

Rubrics are an essential tool for both teaching and learning. A well-constructed rubric provides descriptions of levels of performance quality on the criteria of an assessment item. It provides a guideline for marking for staff and assists students to understand the differing levels of knowledge and skill required in assessment items. The aim of this session is to provide you with the skills and knowledge to effectively write clear assessment criteria and develop aligned assessment rubrics. Bring samples of your assessment outlines and any existing rubrics you may have. There will be an opportunity to revisit them and edit as required. A practical drop-in session will be provided the following week for attendees to come and ask for assistance in constructing their rubrics.
