  1. Thank you for the podcast on rubrics. I distributed rubrics for several Comp I and Comp II assignments last semester. I am not sure a rubric ever made my grading easier. I still find myself defending my rubric ratings with many additional remarks — and sometimes crossing out some of the content in a particular rubric description that is not applicable to the paper at hand.

    • I’ve had just the opposite experience, but definitely after some tinkering. What’s nice about the Blackboard rubrics is that you can add comments to each of your descriptions to clarify if a student’s performance doesn’t exactly match your pre-formed description.
