Students and faculty often perceive the meaning and function of grades differently. Grading rubrics offer one way for faculty to communicate their grading standards and criteria clearly, objectively and effectively. Rubrics can also help students understand how their work is evaluated and what range of criteria contribute to excellent, average, or substandard work. In this interactive workshop sponsored by the University Teaching Fellows Program, participants will discuss the whys and hows of grading rubrics, consider the utility of such a tool for their grading needs, and create a sample rubric for a course assignment of their choice.
