TYPES OF RUBRIC • Holistic Provides a single score based on an overall impression of a learner’s performance on a task When to Use: -when a quick snapshot of achievement is needed -when a single dimension is adequate to define quality
TYPES OF RUBRIC • Analytic Uses several distinct criteria to evaluate learner products and performances When to Use: • -when you want to show relative strengths and weaknesses • When you want detailed feedback • When you assess complicated skills or performance • When you want students to self-assess their understanding or performance
