Many faculty employ rubrics in their courses to assist students in knowing what will be assessed. This article posted in Faculty Focus discusses new ways to employ rubrics that faculty may want to incorporate into their toolbox of teaching strategies. The five ways to use rubrics that are discussed in more detail in the article are:
- A Rubric for Thinking – Useful for right after a new rubric and assignment are explained.
- A Rubric for Peer Feedback – Useful for having students assess and support each other in their learning.
- A Rubric for Teacher Feedback – Useful to provide feedback from the instructor before actual grades are assigned.
- A Rubric for Mini-Lessons – Useful to highlight areas that still require mastery where other students can assist via mentoring.
- A Rubric for Making Grades Visible – Useful for students to self-assess their own work.
