Understanding RubricKing Rubrics Stored Rubrics Exist As Models
Our rubrics are not static grids for deriving specific scores. Rubrics built on RubricKing.com are stored as conceptual models. This allows each defined element within a rubric to remain 'aware' of its relative value toward the concept of wholeness in its use. In the editor, you can build conceptually in 'percentage mode' or use the more familiar setting 'point mode' to create and edit your rubric models for your rubric library.
Our rubrics do not use the traditional rubric grid layout. Instead, each dimension, a category or concept to be independently assessed, gives the user complete choice over the dimension's levels - descriptions of varied achievement possible within a dimension. This means that the number of levels and the relative value of each level can be set differently for each dimension within the same rubric.
Rubrics with more than one dimension (a.k.a. analytic rubrics) can also be given various weighting in order to give more importance to certain dimensions compared than others.
Values Set with Assignments
Premium users can independently set point values for rubrics when they create an assignment to be scored with the rubric. Assignments are named independently from the name of the rubric and are connected to a group (a named select population of students or individuals - usually roster-based). The value of the assignment can be different for each use of the same rubric, and each one may be updated at any time.
