When you click the Create Assignment button on the Classwork page, you have many options. One of the most useful features is found in Assignment: Rubric.
How it works
- When you click the rubric button, you have a single criterion (the thing to be assessed) and only one level.
- Add a title and description for the criterion.
- Add levels and score them, writing descriptions for each.
- Add criteria (or you can duplicate a criterion you’ve already made by clicking the 3 dots menu).
- Save when done.
- The great thing is that you can reuse a rubric in another assignment.
- When it comes to marking, the rubric loads next to the assignment. It is just a matter of clicking the relevant score.
- The rubric mark will be converted to the appropriate assignment mark.
Something to think about...
- A rubric should in the first instance be useful to the student. It should provide the all-important feedback that will help her to know where to improve. So, vague criteria and levels do not help.
- Also, try to make each criterion specific. Rather have more criteria.
- You might feel that a certain rubric does not provide enough “space” to assess honestly; eg if it is 0, 1 or 2, then you are limited to 0%, 50% or 100%. So rather have more levels, and then adjust the weightings accordingly in relation to the other criteria (eg make everything count X3, then you can assess from 0-6).
