AAUP Dissertation Rubric and Descriptors


A rubric is a scoring guide that seeks to evaluate a student’s performance based on the sum of a full range of criteria rather than a single numerical score.
A rubric is an authentic assessment tool used to measure students’ work.

  • Faculty-generated
  • Student Generated: When used as an evaluative tool enable students to be candid and specific in their evaluations of their own writing, thus supporting what research says about authentic assessment and self-regulated learning (Grierson, Anson & Baird, 2002; Bandert-Drowns, Kulik, Kulik & Morgan, 1991).
