What's Wrong--and What's Right--with Rubrics.
Popham, W. James
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p72-75 Oct 1997
The term "rubric" refers to a scoring guide used to evaluate the quality of students' constructed responses (written compositions, oral presentations, or science projects). Although educators rave about rubrics, the vast majority are instructionally fraudulent. Problems arise when rubrics are too task-specific or general or lengthy and confuse the skill tested with the test itself. (MLH)
