Tools for Writing Rubrics

Page history last edited by LCI, Ltd. 6 years, 5 months ago

The first step in writing a rubric is to investigate if the process, product or performance that students will be engaged in deserves a rubric. Once you've established that a rubric is a good fit, there are several different starting options. For example, you can:

  • revise rubrics you've found online that you really like
  • start from standards, learning outcomes, or essential questions


A few tools to support you as you develop your rubric:

  • Troubleshooting your first draft
    • Thinking about describing those "lower" levels (Hint: it's not about what they're doing wrong)
  • Additional ways to support and work with students around the issue of quality
  • Tips for writing Quality Rubrics
  • A checklist (PDF) for Quality Rubrics
  • A self-assessment or peer review feedback form for Quality Rubrics (Word Doc)
  • A process for when you absolutely must use a rubric in a grading schema  
  • And of course, two rubrics for rubrics
