eCampus Quality Assurance Rubrics
Rubrics are multidimensional sets of scoring guidelines that can be used to provide consistency in evaluating student work. They spell out scoring criteria so that multiple teachers, using the same rubric for a student's essay, for example, would arrive at the same score or grade.
Rubrics are used from the initiation to the completion of a student project. They provide a measurement system for specific tasks and are tailored to each project.
Course/Program Evaluation Rubrics
A scoring rubric is a standard of performance for a defined population. It is a pre-determined set of goals and objectives on which to base an evaluation.
Sloan C defines rubrics as a quality framework consisting of five pillars of Learning Effectiveness, Scale (Cost Effectiveness and Commitment), Access, Faculty Satisfaction and Student Satisfaction.
This rubric is a tool to assist faculty members in the design and development of their courses. It can be a great way to self assess your course. Also, a peer or instructional designer could use it as a way to assist you as you refine your course.
The Quality Matters Rubric is a set of 8 general standards and 41 specific standards used to evaluate the design of online and blended courses. The Rubric is complete with annotations that explain the application of the standards and the relationship among them. A scoring system and set of online tools facilitate the evaluation by a team of reviewers.
