Rubric Building

Rubric Sample / Non-holistic, Scored

Rubric in OWL Rating Module (i.e., what the rater sees)

Analytic (or Non-Holistic) - A rating level for each criterion of performance is selected. In the OWL rating module the rater selects a radio button for each row in the rubric.

  • The rater is given radio buttons to select for each row (criterion) of the rubric.

Scored - The rubric applies a percentage (of the available points) to the item based on the level achieved.

  • ∑ {Competency Weight* x (Performance Level Weight x Total Item Points)} = Total Points Earned

If this Rubric were applied to an Item with 50 total possible points (as shown above), an average response would be calculated as follows:

  Competency Weight* Performance Level
   Accuracy (.80)  Excellent (1.00)  .80 x (1.00 x 50 points) = 40 Points
   Fluency (.20)  Average (0.50)  .20 x ( 0.50 x 50 points) =   5 Points
       Total Points Earned = 45 Points

*The Competency Weight is calculated as follows: Relative Weight for the Row ÷ Sum of all the Row Weights
