Rubrics can help ensure consistent and impartial grading and help students focus on your expectations.
A rubric is a scoring tool you can use to evaluate graded work. When you create a rubric, you divide the assigned work into parts. You can provide clear descriptions of the characteristics of the work associated with each part, at varying levels of skill.
Students can use a rubric to organise their efforts to meet the requirements of the marked work. When you allow students access to rubrics before they complete their work, you provide transparency into your grading methods.
These user guides give guidance on using rubrics within the Blackboard Assignment Tool.
