Dannelle D. Stevens, Antonia J. Levi
Welcome. Here are links that allow you to download rubrics from our book, Introduction to Rubrics.
The following links present examples of completed rubrics
and templates you can use to develop your own rubrics, using the guidelines
presented in the book.
We also invite you to share your
rubrics with us so that we can post a wider range of examples, representing a
broader range of disciplines, than we were able to include in the book.
We have in addition set up a Web site
to encourage discussion among users and aspiring users of rubrics in higher
education – see below for details.
University studies portfolio rubric for diversity dimension
This is an example of a simple one-dimensional scoring
guide. As you can see on page 40 of the book, or in the next link, you may add
a further column for comments.
Leading a class discussion rubric
This presents an elaboration of the above format, showing
how you can assign a value to a student’s performance across the range of
"dimensions" or components of an assignment.
The following links present blank templates that are created
in Word. You can add your text to them, alter the height or width of columns,
and use the Word program’s functions to add / delete rows or columns.
Please feel free to attach your rubric as a .doc file in an
email to either of us, firstname.lastname@example.org
or email@example.com. Then, if necessary, we will then format it,
and, with your permission, post it on this website.
To join the online discussions we are hosting and moderating, please go to:
This site also offers a glossary and more information on the
authors. Thank you for your interest in
rubrics and improving assessment in higher education.
