"Rubrics can be created in a variety of forms and levels of complexity, however, they all contain three common features which:

  • focus on measuring a stated objective (performance, behavior, or quality).
  • use a range to rate performance.
  • contain specific performance characteristics arranged in levels indicating the degree to which a standard has been met (Pickett and Dodge)."

Nancy Pickett and Bernie Dodge. "Rubrics for Web Lessons." [Online] 22 October 2001.<>.

Some instructors may use Rubrics created with D2L, Word or Excel.  Please consult your faculty member for any needed explanation about the details of the rubric you may have questions about.
