"A rubric is a scoring tool that explicitly represents the performance expectations for an assignment or piece of work. A rubric divides the assigned work into component parts and provides clear descriptions of the characteristics of the work associated with each component, at varying levels of mastery. Rubrics can be used for a wide array of assignments: papers, projects, oral presentations, artistic performances, group projects, etc. Rubrics can be used as scoring or grading guides, to provide formative feedback to support and guide ongoing learning efforts, or both." (Eberly Center, CMU)
"Let's Get Ready to Rubric" provides a general overview of how rubrics are used by instructors and students at CCAC, as well as how VALUE rubrics will be used throughout a student's higher education experience.
