The Basics of Rubrics

Rubrics are “set of clear expectations or criteria used to help teachers and students focus on what is valued in a subject, topic, or activity” (Airasan & Russell, 2008, p. 223). They are a helpful tool to assess student work, as they make assessment criteria visible. Rubrics tend to have two key components: the criteria used for the assessment, and descriptors of quality organized in progressive levels of performance.
