PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

THE IMPORTANCE OF CLASSROOM RUBRICS

Have you ever studied for an exam and after it was over forgotten everything you crammed into your head? I have. Testing is one of the most inaccurate ways of assessing students, yet it is the one we most depend on. One of the hardest tasks that teachers are faced with is assessment. Traditionally, assessments are measured by tests.

A better way to assess course outcomes is to use rubrics. Rubrics can answer the question: have students achieved the learning outcomes of the course? Rubrics are an assessment tool that is useful for assessing criteria and behaviors that are complex and subjective.

Using rubrics allows teachers to move past the traditional exam format and assess complicated and vague outcomes.

I have attached six rubrics for you to use. These rubrics are based on the ones we use at Albertus Magnus College where I teach. Feel free to use them, change them to meet your needs and so on.


RUBRIC 1: FOR WRITTEN PAPERS, REPORTS, ETC.

RUBRIC 2: FOR GROUP PRESENTATIONS

RUBRIC 3: FOR INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATIONS

RUBRIC 4: FOR CLASS PARTICIPATION

RUBRIC 5: FOR RESEARCH REPORTS

RUBRIC 6: FOR CASE STUDY ANALYSIS


There are many advantages to using rubrics:

 Clearer grading criteria

 Clearer expectations

 Clearer and more specific and more effective feedback

There are three steps to creating your own rubrics:

1. Create categories that measure course objectives and outcomes

Determine the criteria that makes meaningful and relevant categories

Be sure the criteria are directly relevant to the course or the assignment

2. Select a reasonable number of categories

There is no absolute number of categories although five is a good number.

If the rubric is mostly diagnostic, use more categories

If the rubric is for a particular lesson, use fewer categories

3. Write benchmark descriptions.

What would an outstanding example of each category look like?

What is the best way to describe this level of performance in a concrete way?
