Infographic – What Are Rubrics?

Rubric Infographic

What are rubrics ?
Rubrics are scoring charts. They display what is expected of the learner for the assignment. Rubrics are used to assess the learner on several points. Learners can use rubrics as a guide to meet all the requirements for the assignment. Teachers should  follow the rubric when creating and grading assignments.

Why Use Rubrics ?

  • Rubrics enable teachers to better focus each learning event to address the rubric elements
  • A rubric allows teachers to assess based on the expectations in the rubric
  • A rubric lets the learner know what is expected from the beginning
  • Rubrics are tangible in writing.
  • Rubrics provide teachers with a determined goal which they can more easily explain.
  • Rubrics specify each assignment element so the learner can focus.
  • Rubrics allow learners to compare their work to the rubric before submission.
  • Rubrics are specified and uniform for all learners, leaving little room for unfair grading
  • Rubrics can be used as a guide for teachers to address, and give feedback for each issue in an assignment.

How to use rubrics ?

  • Understand the expectations that the rubric has laid out
  • Write Rubrics that make sense for your assignment
  • Read the rubric to the students and then ask if they have questions
  • Disclose that there is a rubric that will guide your grading.
  • Give out the rubric at the beginning of the unit or course
  • Copy and paste the rubric at the end of the assignment and grade on the rubric
  • Follow the rubric
  • After grading is done tweak your rubric to meet your expectations for the next assignment.
  • Have a set of standard rubrics to pull out and use throughout the year.
