How To Digitise Your Rubric and Streamline The Feedback Process

WHAT IS RUBRIC

A rubric is a scoring guide used to evaluate performance, a product, or a project. It has three parts: 

1) performance criteria; 2) rating scale; and 3) indicators. 

The rubric outlines what is required of you and your students and includes the criteria for evaluation.

WHY DO WE USE A RUBRIC?

Rubrics help instructors: 

  • Assess assignments consistently from student to student. 
  • Save time in grading, both short-term and long-term. 
  • Give timely, effective feedback and promote student learning in a sustainable way. 
  • Clarify expectations and components of an assignment for both students and course teaching assistants (TAs). 
  • Refine teaching methods by evaluating rubric results. 

Rubrics help students: 

  • Understand expectations and components of an assignment. 
  • Become more aware of their learning process and progress. 
  • Improve work through timely and detailed feedback. 

DIGITISING YOUR RUBRIC IN THREE WAYS

Here are three ways to digitise rubrics using three different platforms, namely BookWidgets, Google Classroom and Seesaw. You might want to consider which one is the best fit for your needs depending on the platform’s availability in your school or the various needs of your assessment.

Get your rubric ready first, before anything else. For easier editing, you can convert a PDF-type rubric to a word document or Google Doc.

💡Tip: Use Pdf Candy to convert document types easily.
