Using Rubrics to Assess Accounting Students' Writing, Oral Presentations, and Ethics Skills
Anderson, Joseph S.; Mohrweis, Lawrence C.
American Journal of Business Education, v1 n2 p85-94 2008
This paper presents examples of rubrics that can be used in the assessment of the acquisition of generic skills in accounting education. A rubric is a matrix containing the various factors of an assignment along one dimension (rows) and descriptors of the qualitative levels of accomplishment along the other dimension (columns). A rubric can facilitate the grading of assignments and help students' improve their generic skills. Examples of rubrics are presented that educators may find beneficial to enhance the generic skills of their students. This paper illustrates five different rubrics and provides an in-depth discussion on how the "ethics" rubric was used to assess students' learning.
