A rubric is an attempt to communicate expectations of quality around a task.  A rubric can also provide a basis for self-evaluation, reflection, and peer review. It is aimed at accurate and fair assessment, fostering understanding, and indicating a way to proceed with subsequent learning/teaching.Please find abelow a variety of rubrics that I have encountered from various workshops and courses that I have attended. Please give the authors of the rubrics the appropriate recognition if you decide to spread these on to your colleagues.

Peer Assessment Rubric – based on a design by Richard Felder

Sharon Flynn from NUI Galway very kindly shared rubric that she uses for On Discussion participation

Oral assessment – Dolan School of Business, Fairfield University

As a student on the Learning Innovation Network special purpose award “Teaching and Learning”, I received feedback in the form of a rubric on a seminar paper that I submitted to the course instructors, led by Marion Palmer, IADT.

There is also a good discussion in this article on rubrics for student blogs

I would be really interested in your comments on rubrics and would be delighted if you would be willing to share rubrics that you have came across throughout your education. I have also found great websites on assessment that can be accessing by clicking http://www.diigo.com/user/markglynn/assessment
