Scoring Rubrics

These are descriptive scoring schemes that are developed by teachers to guide the analysis of the products or processes of students efforts.

Criteria Setting
Criteria are statements which identify what really counts in the final output.
Example: Quality Creativity Comprehensiveness Accuracy Aesthetics

Identify substatements that would make the major criteria more focused and objective.
Example: Essay on The Three Hundred Years of Spanish Rules in the Philippines Quality Interrelates the chronological events in an interesting manner Identifies the key players in each period of the Spanish rule and the roles that they played Succeeds in relating the history of Philippine Spanish rule

When are scoring rubrics an appropriate evaluation technique?

Essay Evaluate group activities Oral presentations

Where and when a scoring rubric is used does not depend on the grade level or subject, but rather on the purpose of the assessment

Other Methods
Checklists are appropriate for evaluation when the information that is sought is limited to the determination of whether specific criteria have been met. Scoring rubrics are based on descriptive scales and support the evaluation of the extent to which criteria have been met. If the purpose of assessment have been met
Benefits of scoring rubrics: 1. They support the examination of the extent to which the specified criteria have been reached. 2. They provide feedback to students concerning how to improve their performances

Process of Developing Scoring Rubrics

Steps 1. Identify the qualities and attributes that you wish to observe in the students outputs that would demonstrate their level of proficiency 2. Decide whether a holistic or analytical rubric would be appropriate In analytic scoring rubric, each criteria is considered one by one and the descriptions of the scoring levels are made separately while in holistic rubric, the collection of criteria is considered throughout the construction of each level of the scoring rubric and the result is a single descriptive scoring schemes.

Process of Developing Scoring Rubrics

3. Identify and define the criteria for the top level and lowest level of performance 4. Create additional categories such as average, etc. Each score category should be defined using descriptors of the work rather than value-judgment about the work Example: Students sentences contain no errors in subject-verb agreements, is preferable than students sentences are good

5. Test whether scoring rubric is reliable. Ask two or more teachers to score the same set of projects or outputs and correlate their individual assessments

Holistic vs. Analytical

Holistic Holistic rubrics give a single score or rating for an entire product or performance based on overall impression of a students work. The ratter considers all quality judgments in one big component and overall judgment and comes up with one single score.

Example of a Holistic scoring rubric designed to evaluate college writing samples

Major Criterion: Meets Expectations for a first Draft of a Professional Report Substatements: The document can be easily followed. A combination of the following are apparent in the document:
1. 2. 3. Effective transitions are used through. A professional format is used. The graphics are descriptive and clearly support the documents purpose.

The document is clear and concise and appropriate grammar is used throughout Adequate The document can be easily followed. A combination of the following are apparent in the document:
1. 2. 3. Basic transitions are used, Structured format is used. Some supporting graphics are provided, but are not clearly explained.

The document contains minimal distractions that appear in a combination of the following forms:
1. 2. 3. Flow in thought Graphical presentations Grammar/mechanics

Needs Improvement Organization of document is difficult to follow due to a combination of the following:
1. 2. 3. 4. Inadequate transitions Rambling format Insufficient or irrelevant information Ambiguous graphics

The document contains numerous distractions that appear in the combination of the following forms:
1. 2. 3. Flow in thought Graphical presentation Grammar/mechanics


There appears to be no organization of the documents contents Sentences are difficult to read and understand

Example of Holistic
Excellent level Student shows complete understanding of the tasks and concepts Clear identification of key concepts and important elements Excellent writing style Pertinent insight and demonstration of appropriate application of main ideas Good level Understanding of most critical concepts Shows identification of some key concepts but most of the parts are missing Adequate writing style with minor errors, some limited clarity in expressions Scarce demonstration of application of main ideas Poor level Misunderstanding of majority of concepts or no understanding of concepts and processes Irrelevant or illegible response that has no relation to the key concepts Unsuccessful attempt to communicate Lack of demonstration in application of main ideas

Holistic Rubrics Are Suitable for Judging simple products or performances Getting a quick snapshot of overall quality or achievement; often used when a large number of students are graded Judging the impact of a product or performance more than the specific detailed parts of the performance. Disadvantages There is no detailed analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the performance or product, so holistic rubrics are not useful as diagnostics or for giving students detailed feedback on their performance. Holistic rubrics offer little in the way of help to students who would improve their performance.

Analytical Rubric
Analytical rubrics divide a product into essential dimensions (traits), and each dimension is judged separately. A separate score is given for each dimension or trait considered important for the assessed performance. Scoring of each trait can be done by using a Likert scale (e.g., 1 to 5 where 1 is poor quality, 3 is average, and 5 is excellent quality).

Criteria 4 excellent The poster is exceptionally attractive in term of design lay out &neatness Several of the graphics used on the poster reflect a exceptional degree of student creativity in their creation and display Graphics are all in focus and the content easily viewed &identified from 6ft away


3 very good The poster is attractive in term of design lay out &neatness

2 Good The poster is acceptable attractive thought it may be a bit messy

1 needs improvement The poster is distractingly messy or very poorly design it is not attractive



One or two of the graphics used on the poster reflect student creativity in their creation or display

The graphic are made by the student but are based on the design or ideas of others.

Total A, excellent 10-12 B, above average 7-9 C, below average 6-5 D, needs improvement 4-0

Analytical Rubric Are Suitable for Judging complex performances that involve multiple dimensions (skills that must be assessed). Each step in the rubric can be designed to measure one specific trait. Provide more specific information and feedback to students about their strengths and weaknesses. Can be used to target instruction to specific areas in need for improvement. Analytical rubrics help students come to a better understanding about the nature and quality of work they must perform. Disadvantages More time consuming to craft and use in grading Lower inter-rater agreement because of the many and detailed traits Less desirable in large scale assessment context when many students must be graded and when speed in grading is essential

Guidelines for Stating Performance Criteria

1. Identify the steps or features of the performance or task to be assessed imagining yourself performing it, observing students performing it or inspecting finished products. 2. List the important criteria of the performance or product.

3. Try to keep the performance criteria few so that they can be reasonably observed and judged.


Have teachers think through the criteria as a group. Express the criteria in terms of observable student behavior or product characteristics. Avoid vague and ambiguous words like correctly, appropriately, and good. Arrange the performance assessment instruments to use or modify them before constructing them.
