Rubrics are intended to give meaningful feedback to students on their talks/presentations and design. Their use actively supports our ongoing assessment of student learning and program outcomes, a vital and important part of our academic mission. Forms for your use are provided below. Please note these 3 important rules:
- Students should not be awarded a score of Less Than 2 (<2) unless they are completely unprepared.
- Research that is ongoing (not completed) is NOT a reason to give a score of <2.
- The rubric is a checklist of criteria at different levels of performance for specific categories.
- Note: Students may hit criteria under a multitude of levels for one category, e.g. demonstrating criteria under both advanced and proficient levels for the category "Scientific Merit and Content of Presentation."
- For each category, you will average the student's score. Then, to determine the student's overall average score, you will average each section at the bottom of the rubric.
