Grading Rubrics

This course utilizes analytic grading rubrics as tools for your professor in assigning grades for all learning activities. Each

rubric serves as a guide that communicates the expectations of the learning activity and describes the criteria for each

level of achievement. In addition, a rubric is a reference tool that lists evaluation criteria and can help you organize your

efforts to meet the requirements of that learning activity. It is imperative for you to familiarize yourself with these rubrics

because these are the primary tools your professor uses for assessing learning activities.
