Assessment 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 selected subject learning outcomes for an assessment task of your choice.  Drawing on teaching and learning examples from academics across FBE, you will be given the opportunity to work through the rubric development process so that you can begin to design or enhance your own marking rubric. The workshop will also provide ideas on how to convert your rubrics to e-rubrics using Speedgrader and GradeBook within Canvas.

Workshop delivery format: This workshop will utilise a blended delivery mode to help enrich the face-to-face two-hour workshop.

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, assignment or activity for which you will design a rubric during the workshop.
