Check your work with rubrics

A rubric is an assessment tool that defines the grading or feedback criteria for an assignment. If an assignment has a rubric, you can see it in the assignment description. As you work, refer to the rubric to help improve your grade.

After your instructor grades and returns your work, you can review your rubric score. In scored rubrics, each level has points you can earn. Your instructor matches the level of your work to a level on the rubric. Review the rubric to see what category you did well in, and where you might improve.
