Blackboard Rubrics

Rubrics

A rubric is an assessment tool listing evaluation criteria for an assignment, and provides a means to convey to students your expectations for the quality of completed assignments. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment, and you can use them to explain evaluations to students. Rubrics can help ensure consistent and impartial grading.

About Rubrics

Rubrics are made up of rows and columns. The rows correspond to the various criteria of an assignment. The columns correspond to the level of achievement expressed for each criterion. A description and point value for each cell in the rubric defines the evaluation and score of an assignment. You can create as many rubrics as you need.

Blackboard Rubrics allow:

  • Clearer communication of expections to students
  • Quicker grading for faculty
  • In depth analysis of students' work and meeting objectives through rubric reports

For more information on developing and using rubrics in Blackboard, visit Blackboard's Rubrics page.
