A rubric is a scoring guide that enables the faculty and others to make reliable judgments about a student product or performance while also allowing students to self assess their work. Based on a continuum of performance quality, the rubric identifies the key traits or dimensions from the content, learning skills or technology tools standards and objectives to be examined and assessed.

When a rubric is well-defined, learners know exactly what is expected of them and how they can achieve the top grade. When the expectations remain consistent across a school or within a classroom, the students understand how to develop a plan for continuous growth and the rubric becomes an ongoing part of the whole teaching and learning experience.

The Assessment Committee of the College developed a detailed set of assessment rubrics that were approved by the College and will be used for scoring.
