This article will walk you through how to create a Rubric Assessment. A rubric is a grid based tool that is used to grade a students performance against a predetermined set of expectations, instead of other students. A rubric is designed to help you compare students results to the desired outcomes of an assessment. In Chalk, this assessment is similar to Score assessments, but with an attached rubric.
From the Markboard Assessment tab, click the green plus button to select an assessment style.
Select Rubric and create your assessment, making sure A (Assessment Name) B (Out of) C (Due Date) and D (Category) are filled out. And Create Assessment.
You’ll be taken to the grading page where you can take advantage of the grading option. But to build the rubric, you’ll want to select Edit Rubric beside PDF.
You will see the default rubric shown below, but everything is customizable, based on your requirements.
- A: You can change the title of your Rubric to reflect your assessment title.
- B: Categories/Levels can be changed as well, just because the default is Knowledge/Understanding, doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. You can overwrite column and row names based on your specific criteria.
- C: You can enter text criteria in the gray areas to suit your rubric. This is where the standard set that students are being graded against will go.
Columns and rows can be added and deleted as necessary. As an example, I’m going to set up a Summer Math Project Rubric, with 3 columns and 2 rows. Now let’s take a look at how we can use this rubric while grading students
When grading rubric assessments, you will have the option to enter the grade, make comments, and assess the rubric.When you mark rubric assessments, you can see the criteria while inputting feedback by hovering over the box.
Note: You will still need to put a grade in the grade field, to ensure it’s counted towards a students grade.
Re-use your rubrics with ease! When you create your next Rubric assessment simply go to the rubric editor in the new assessment and click the Import Rubric option to select from any previously created rubrics.
