This second edition of Introduction to Rubrics has been expanded to cover the use of rubrics for grading, in online courses, for self-assessment of teaching, program assessment, service learning, study abroad, and student affairs, among other applications.

This edition retains the appeal, clarity, and practicality that made the first so successful, and continues to provide a fundamental introduction to the principles and purposes of rubrics, with guidance on how to construct them, use them to align course content to learning outcomes, and apply them in a wide variety of courses, and to all forms of assignment.

Reflecting developments since publication of the first edition, the authors have extended coverage to include:

  • Expanded discussion on use of rubrics for grading
  • Grading on-line with rubrics
  • Wider coverage of rubric types (e.g., holistic, rating scales)
  • Rubric construction in student affairs
  • Pros and cons of working with “ready-made” rubrics
  • Using rubrics to improve your teaching
  • Use of rubrics in program assessment (case study)
  • Application of rubrics in the arts, for study abroad, service learning, and students’ independent learning
  • Up-dated literature review
