Course Description:

Would you like to increase reliability and consistency in marking, ensure alignment with intended learning outcomes and provide an efficient feedback mechanism for students?

This workshop will focus on the benefits and potential challenges of using rubrics in assessment within your subject area and provide practical guidance on:

  • How to design a good rubric
  • Creating and marking with rubrics in Assessment UCL
  • There will be opportunities for discussion and questions.
