Using Rubrics to Assess Student Work


Rubrics make grading criteria clearer to faculty and students, students turn in better work, and feedback is more objective and consistent. In this workshop, we explain how to develop and use rubrics. We will also introduce iRubric, a tool available within Sakai. If there is interest, a follow-up session can provide hands on with iRubric.
