Evaluation by competences and rubrics:


Rubrics are tools which allows us to measure performance levels, what a student knows and what he or she is able to do. They are one of the best ways to measure acquisition of key or core competences.

Depending on what we want to evaluate, rubrics can be of two types:

  • Holistic and global: this type gives overall information about a class or student through an objective measurement of learning outcomes as laid out in a curriculum.
  • Analytic: designed for specific tasks and using learning outcomes related to that particular Task.

Whatever the type, rubrics are generally organised in grids or tables showing the skill(s), content(s), learning outcome(s) and level of acquisition of each of the chosen Learning outcomes.
