Rubrics for Grading: Leveling the Playing Field

Rubrics are a scoring tool that outlines the specific expectations of a course assignment or project. In this video, we will discuss the components of a rubric, the types and uses of rubrics in a course, and the steps to create a rubric. As an instructor, you can provide clear expectations and a reflective resource for student success through rubrics. Rubrics can be used in summative and formative assessments based on your grading needs and can be built into Moodle for straightforward grade entry. When thoughtfully curated, a rubric can enhance the instructor and student experience in a course.
