We all know that when it comes to grading, all teachers lose their minds. It is a highly time-consuming task. Teachers find themselves making the same comments over and over again, students repeatedly question us about the assignment requirement, and we also question ourselves whether we are being fair throughout the process. I wonder if we are grading the first students the same way we are grading the students after grading 50 assignments.
Rubrics are definitely the answer to solve these problems. And best of all, they can also be designed by students after some practice.

At first, rubrics can be difficult to specify criteria and standards, however, once understood, it makes the evaluation consistent and helps students understand our expectations.
