Scoring Rubrics Part I: What and When. ERIC/AE Digest.
Moskal, Barbara M.
This Digest describes different types of scoring rubrics and explains why they are useful. Scoring rubrics are descriptive scoring schemes that are developed by teachers or other evaluators to guide the analysis of the products or processes of students' efforts. Scoring rubrics are generally used when a judgment of quality is required, and they may be used to evaluate a broad range of activities. The evaluation of writing is a common use of scoring rubrics. Several types of scoring rubrics are available. The first distinction is between analytic and holistic scoring rubrics. An analytic scoring rubric allows for the separate evaluation of each factor considered in the evaluation. A holistic scoring rubric may be preferable when there is an overlap between the criteria set for the evaluation of the different factors. Rubrics are also divided into general versus task-specific rubrics, and may be designed to contain both general and task-specific components. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
