Webinar Overview
Assigning grades to student essays, presentations, and projects can be a difficult task, especially when it appears that many of the students did not understand the task assigned. Well-written rubrics help students understand what they are expected to accomplish in an assignment or a course of study. Join us and learn how to develop rubrics to assist in making the evaluation and feedback process more effective, more objective, and more likely to result in deeper student learning. Participants will receive a Quick Guide to rubrics and a rubric template. The information presented in this webinar can be used in both face-to-face and online courses.
Webinar Objectives
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Describe characteristics of a rubric
  • Distinguish between analytic and holistic rubrics
  • Design a rubric
  • Articulate how rubrics can be useful
  • Discover how to use rubrics to make the evaluation and feedback process more effective and objective
