Rubrics are an effective tool that can be used to both simplify the grading process and to provide feedback to students. In this session, we will explore the pros and cons of using rubrics, discuss how the use of rubrics can benefit students, and learn how to construct good rubrics that work in your specific academic context. We’ll also explore the new interactive rubrics available in Connect and learn how to create, edit, apply and use rubrics for assessment. You’ll leave with firm grasp of how and why rubrics are an effective teaching and assessment tool, and an enthusiasm for using rubrics in your courses.
