Align objectives with rubrics, and yield heightened motivation with the use of self and peer assessments. 


Rubics provide a detail format for the student as a margin of what is expected within the course or an assignment. A rubic is also used as a tool for feedback for the instructor to the student, thus, allowing the student a reference as to where he/she needs strengthen and therer understanding of the assignment or course. 


Rubrics can provide valuable feedback for students, if carefuly palnned.

The correct way of using the rubric is very important.  Using it to provide guidance  for students in the area of self and peer assessment aid in evaluating themselves.  Learner center assessment allow collaboration between student and instructor.  It also allows diverse talent and learning style which foster continued learning skills.

Authentic assessment involves students performing real-world tasks so they can demonstrate that they can apply what they have learned. Rubrics are key components of authentic assessments. Important aspects of the type of assessment that enhances learning are:

clear criteria;
frequent feedback;
informative feedback; and
opportunities for self-assessment.

Rubrics may not fully convey all information instructor wants students to know. 

Rubrics must be reliable to ensure that self-improvement is assessed.  

Self-assessments can be used to help students judge how well they learned the material, how skillfully they performed, how well they completed the process, and/or how well they developed a product.

If the framework is not clear it is very difficult to assign levels of compliance. But when the framework is clear about the objectives is easier to deliver a rubric. Also it is important to have a system to collect feedback from many evaluators, including the students themselves

La planificación es fundamental para diseñar una rúbrica ya que mejore la coherencia en la evaluación y la comprensión de las expectativas de los estudiantes. Es muy importante que los estudiantes se autoevalúen y se evalúen entre ellos.

Rubrics provide a useful for students to provide useful feedback to their peers. It also allow instructors to access their understanding of the material.

Rubrics have both pros and cons, knowing them will help you create rubric that will be successful.

One of the issues when it comes to using rubrics is that it gives students too much information. This can overwhelm students instead of empowering them. Also, as a professor, it can be extremely difficult for us to come up with the appropriate language for the rubric so that the expectations are very clear to the students.

It is important to allow for enough time to construct a rubric that evaluates students understanding of a subject.  Rubrics need to have specific criteria set rather than vague criteria, ie; "some".

Rubics are time consuming but give valuable information to the student for assessments

I found that peer assessments are effective to receiving feedback to help me make improvements to my rubrics.

Self and peer-assessments provide for the development of constructive criticism in a formative environment, allowing for reflection, clear thinking and motivation to improve.

Rubrics are essential in assessing students performance.
