Abstract

The modern instructor is accustomed to using rubrics to grade assignments and other course activities, but the format, verbiage, and point structure can make these grading grids frustrating for students and faculty alike instead of providing the guidance intended. Institutional restrictions and Learning Management System limitations can also restrict the development of acceptable assessment rubrics. A short history of stratified grading structures along with advantages and disadvantages are coupled with a practical look at the various kinds of rubrics and tools available for creating meaningful evaluative instruments. Examples and links along with instructions for those using Word and Excel are included.
