Data-Driven Decisions: Using Rubrics for Programmatic Assessments

Rubric-based grading is often recommended for providing consist and actionable feedback while conveying discrete expectations to students. But the advantages of grading with rubrics can have a measurable impact beyond the immediate assignment.

This session provides real-world examples of expanding the use of rubric data to generate course-level assessments and to make program-level changes. Course-level examples examine development of critical thinking and comparison between online and face-to-face sections. Program-level example shows how rubric assessments allow a department to make actionable decisions.
