Rubrics offer many benefits for assessing student learning in business education. Assessment rubrics help to explicitly articulate the marking criteria and assessment standards while providing consistent student feedback. This two-hour workshop will introduce you to the steps for designing assessment rubrics that align with your subject’s objectives and with a chosen assessment task. Drawing on teaching and learning examples from academics across the Faculty of Business & Economics, you will be given the opportunity to work through the rubric development process to make assessment design, marking and feedback efficient and consistent. The workshop will also focus on how to convert these rubrics to e-rubrics using Grade Mark within TurnItIn and the LMS as well as the marking and feedback processes associated with the use of rubrics. 

This workshop would suit those who have subject coordination responsibilities as well as those involved with marking student assessment and providing feedback. Please bring an assessment task for which you will design a rubric during the workshop.
