Rubrics: Efficient Grading in Canvas
Rubrics can make assessing student work more transparent and much more efficient. They take the mystery out of grading and allow students to see up front how their work will be assessed. Rubrics make grading more efficient for the instructor as well.
This session is designed to give you a brief overview of the structure and purpose of rubrics. We will also review the benefits of using rubrics as both an assessment and as a teaching tool. Factors which contribute to reliability, validity and fairness of the rubrics will be discussed. The second part of the session will demonstrate how to use the rubric tool available in Canvas. We will focus on how to create a rubric, how to attach it to a discussion board and an assignment.
This training is synchronous online. Registrants will receive a welcome email the morning of the training session with detailed instructions for joining.
