Designing Rubrics

Asking students to perform authentic, complex tasks can provoke higher-level learning, but how can we assess a complicated assignment when it has no “correct” answer? Using rubrics can help you assess the seemingly unassessable. Rubrics also help clarify and communicate your expectations to your students and make for a simpler, faster, and fair grading process. In this introductory-level workshop, we’ll present different types of rubrics, review rubric design best practices, and guide you through the process of beginning to create a rubric to use in their courses. This workshop is pedagogy-focused but will include a brief demonstration of how to create and apply a rubric in Canvas.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe rubrics and identify their components
  • Recognize when it might be appropriate to use a rubric
  • Identify types of rubrics
  • Explain how rubrics can be used as instructional tools
  • Begin to create a rubric that demonstrates alignment to a learning objective, clear performance criteria, and distinct levels of performance

This workshop counts towards the Achievement in Pedagogy badge.
