The Peerceptiv rubric library is now a personal library of Peerceptiv-curated rubrics, rubrics you have used, and rubrics shared with you by your colleagues.
If you want to create a rubric template that is not connected to any assignment description, you can Manage Rubrics. This also allows you to share rubrics with colleagues or view rubrics that others have shared with you.
One way you can get to your rubric library is by clicking on the Peerceptiv icon on the top left bar of the navy bar. Then click Manage Rubrics.
The other way is to click on the circle icon on the top right and then select Manage Rubrics.
There are three categories of rubrics: your rubrics, rubrics that have been shared with you, and Peerceptiv-curated rubrics.
Create a Rubric
If you create a new rubric while in the library, it will not be connected to a specific assignment. The rubric will be available to use in your assignments or shared with a colleague.
To get started, click New Rubric on the top right.
Then you can search for an existing prompt to add or create a new prompt by clicking the plus sign in a circle on the lower right corner. From there, select to add either a commenting prompt or a rating prompt.
Click on Create New or Copy Existing to add a new prompt. Repeat this process as many times as you want to for the assignment.
- For typical peer assessment assignments where the grade will be based on the quality of the submission, the quality of reviewing, and task completion, we recommend at least 3 rating prompts with 4+ descriptor levels. For rubric best practices, there should be at least one commenting prompts and 5+ rating prompts, each with at least four descriptors.
- For low-stakes peer assessment assignments where the grade will be based on the helpfulness of the reviews and task completion but there will not be a submission grade, the rubric can consist of any combination of comment and/or rating prompts. If you have only comment prompts, be sure to adjust the assignment grade settings so the weight is on the task and accuracy grades. If you have only rating prompts, when you set up the assignment, be sure to NOT include a feedback stage. If you have comment prompts and rating prompts, the number of rating prompts doesn’t matter since they are indicating the work’s performance according to the rubric but aren’t determining any part of the student grade.
- For typical peer evaluation assignments, you can use the default rubrics or create your own. These ask students to reflect on the contributions their team members made or the performance in class or group work of their peers and instructors.
To edit the rubric title, click on the title at the top and change it to fit this rubric. When you are done, you can leave the page and the rubric will automatically save.
Share a Rubric
You can share a rubric by hovering your mouse on the rubric name and then clicking on the three dots that appear to the right. Select Share, enter the user’s email address of the person who you want to share with, and then click Share.
You can share with multiple people or remove them, as appropriate.
If you have created a rubric as part of an assignment that has yet to run but you want to share it with someone, please contact email@example.com to have it added to your library. Rubrics in assignments that run will be added automatically at the end of the assignment.
Make one of your rubrics a favorite by starring it. Then you can sort by starred rubrics. This is a nice way of indicating ‘template’ rubrics or the most recent version of a rubric that you want to copy into other assignments or courses.
You can only star your own rubrics. However, after you have used a rubric in an assignment, it will then be listed as one of your rubrics and you can star it.
Please read Build a Rubric if you want to build a rubric within a specific assignment.
