Final project: grading rubric development assignment instructions | EDUC 380 – Current Issues in Education (D) | Liberty University

The purpose of this Final Project: Grading Rubric Development Assignment is to help you develop a rubric that could be used to grade your Final Project: Presentation Assignment. You will develop a rubric tailored specifically to your Final Project: Presentation Assignment. I suggest that you view this Final Project: Grading Rubric Development Assignment as if you were the professor and you are making sure all important components are included in the Final Project: Presentation Assignment. Consider what the professor should look for and what the audience can expect to learn from the Final Project: Presentation Assignment. 

INSTRUCTIONS

The rubric that you develop must: 

1. Be designed specifically for your Final Project: Presentation Assignment. Your rubric should not be general and should NOT use the same categories as the Final Project: Grading Rubric Development Example. You want to make sure that you clearly state your topic and the important areas that need to be addressed in your Final Project: Presentation Assignment. 

2. Evaluate your Final Project: Presentation Assignment in several distinct areas. You must include 5 or more categories in your rubric to evaluate your Final Project: Presentation Assignment. You will need to determine what are the most important aspects that should be addressed in your Final Project: Presentation Assignment and include those in your rubric. 

3. Clearly demonstrate the grading criteria. Be clear in your descriptions for each column. For example, do not include broad criteria such as “Final Project: Presentation Assignment has grammatical errors”. Instead, be specific; “Project has 4-5 grammatical errors”.

4. Total 100 points. The total points for a perfect score should be 100 points. Each column should have a differing point value and a range of points. For example, Advanced = 15-20 points, Proficient = 10-14 points, Developing = 1-9 points, Not Present=0 points. 

There are many different programs available to assist you in creating a rubric. For example, Rubistar, iRubric, etc. You are not required to use these programs, these are just some ideas for you to use as you develop your rubric. 

See the Final Project: Grading Rubric Development Example in the Resources section for additional help. This example was written by a previous student that chose the topic of “10 Ways to Keep Students Motivated in the Classroom”, thus the rubric is tailored specifically to this topic.
