WHAT ARE RUBRICS?

Part of effective communication with your students lies in the explanation of assessment and evaluation of student work. The Rubric is an assessment tool that lists evaluation criteria for an assignment, and provides a means to convey to students your expectations for the quality of completed assignments. This tool is an effective means to enhance an online instructor’s communication strategy.

The Blackboard Rubric is an assessment tool that lists evaluation criteria for an assignment, and provides a means to convey to students your expectations for the quality of completed assignments. This tool is an effective means to enhance an online instructor’s communication strategy. The Blackboard Rubric tool is important for three reasons: (1) Using a Blackboard Rubric Clears up any Grading Ambiguity for Students (2) Using a Blackboard Rubric Makes Grading Easier and Consistent (3) Using a Blackboard Rubric Lets Students Know What they Need to Succeed. Blackboard Rubrics can be associated with:
