If you grade poorly, you are in for trouble, be it because you are spending way too much time on the process, or because you did not get everything right and you have a line of upset students outside your door. Rubrics can help you grade well. They clarify your expectations for your students, help you grade more quickly, make sure every student is held to the same standard, reduce the number of comments you need to write, and help adjudicate grade disputes.
In this workshop, you will learn what rubrics are and why to use them, and you’ll get some practice creating a rubric.
This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
