Why should I use a rubric?


Rubrics allow for the instructor to

– Assess assignments consistently from student-to-student.

– Save time when grading

– Give timely, effective feedback that the student can work from.

– Clarify expectations and components of an assignment

For the student, rubrics provide a guide for the assignment. They know what criteria they must meet to achieve a given result.
