Example Rubrics

Activity Rubric

Rubrics are a set of descriptive assessment criteria and performance levels. In the online learning environment, rubrics provide a means for consistent, fast grading and feedback.

Discussion Rubric

Rubrics offer instructors a powerful feedback and communication tool in the online classroom. Rubrics clearly outline the essential components of an assignment and show students how they are being assessed. Rubrics should focus only on the most important components of an assignment while coaching for improvement, and not focusing on errors.

Writing Assignment Rubric

Instructors can use well-designed rubrics as a tool to identify weak points and areas that might require remediation. It’s important to utilize constructive, objective, and specific language when establishing and differentiating performance level criteria, while also avoiding negative or imprecise language.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
