In this workshop, participants will explore the process of developing a marking rubric for essay type questions. Drawing upon the work of Huba and Freed (Huba M. E., Freed J. E. Learner-Centered Assessment on College Campuses. Boston: Allyn and Bacon; 2000) participants will develop a process for specifying:

  • criteria: the aspects of performance that will be assessed;
  • descriptors: the specific features of the criteria;
  • performance levels: a rating scale that identifies students’ level of attainment within each criterio

The workshop will explore the research on the utility (the challenges as well as the benefits) of developing different types of rubrics (holistic versus analytic) in the marking of essays.


At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the different components of a marking rubric.
  • Deriving the different components of a rubric.
  • Discuss the merits of different types of rubrics in marking student essays.
  • Design and develop simple rubrics for essay type questions.
