What is a Rubric?
A rubric is a tool, that includes descriptions of levels of performance, to enable the grading and/or feedback of students’ work. A rubric usually takes the form of a table or matrix and consists of the following components; different assessment criteria (rows), different performance standards/levels (columns), descriptors of the criteria at each standard/levels (cells). The difference between checklists/rating scales and rubrics is that checklists/rating scales lack descriptions of performance quality (Brookhart, 2013).
