5 Types of Rubrics to Use in Your Art Classes
Most art teachers use rubrics to assess students’ work. Rubrics are a great way to make sure students understand the expectations of the assignment. Because all the criteria are clearly defined, they make grading 100 still life artworks much easier. I use the term “easier” loosely here; we all know grading 100 artworks is never easy!
Choosing what type of rubric to use in your classes is an important choice. There are several different types of rubrics, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Spoiler alert, if you want to see my favorite type of rubric, jump right down to number 5!
First, let’s talk about how rubrics can describe the criteria. There are two main ways rubrics can do this, either in general terms or in more specific terms.
1. The General Rubric
This type of rubric defines characteristics of a successful artwork. It is “general,” meaning it does not define specific criteria for each project. Instead, it might define characteristics such as “technique” or “craftsmanship” you are looking for in each completed project.
The strengths of this type of rubric are you can share it with students to communicate a broad understanding of what makes “quality” work. It can be used over and over for different tasks such as sketchbook assignments and projects. It can also be used to help students assess their own work. Because it is generic, students will attain an understanding of your broad expectations through its continued use.
The weakness of this type of rubric is that it is very broad. It does not clearly define the criteria for each project.
2. The Task-Specific Rubric
A task-specific rubric is, as the name suggests, much more specific. It clearly defines the criteria for each assignment.
What is great about this rubric is that it makes expectations for each assignment very clear. Students can use this rubric to assess their success very easily. It also makes grading easier for teachers, because of its specificity.
The weakness of this type of rubric is that you need to make a new one for each assignment. This can be time-consuming.
Luckily, no matter what type of rubric you choose, there are always ways you can expedite your grading process. If you’re interested in learning more, Tim Bogatz shares some super helpful tips in the PRO Learning Pack, Expediting Your Grading Process . You’ll learn how to develop a more streamlined plan for all types of assessment. You can find this PRO Pack and more on assessment practices in PRO Learning.
Next, let’s talk about the structure of the rubric. Here, too, you have a few different choices.
3. The Analytic Rubric
An analytic rubric breaks down each aspect of the task being assessed. It assesses each criterion separately. For example, say you are teaching a lesson on landscapes to your students. You may want each student’s work to show:
- Foreground, Middleground, and Background
- Atmospheric Perspective
- Overlapping and Size Variation
In an analytic rubric, you would assess each of these criteria separately.
The great thing about these rubrics is they connect your instruction to the assessment very clearly. Students can use them to assess their own work easily. They can also be used for formative assessment. They can show growth when used to assess students again at the end of a unit. You can download an example below.
4. The Holistic Rubric
A holistic rubric is much simpler than an analytic rubric. Instead of breaking apart all the separate criteria, a holistic rubric assesses them all together.
So, if we use the above example of a still life, a holistic rubric would lump all of the criteria together (foreground, middleground, background, atmospheric perspective, overlapping, etc).
The advantage of a holistic rubric is that grading is much faster for the teacher. You only have to come up with a single score for each artwork you grade.
The limitation of this style of rubric is that it is not very useful to share with students. Because it does not break down the task into separate criteria, students would have a hard time using it to assess their work. In addition, it is difficult for students to see where they might improve if all the criteria are all clumped together in a single score. You can download a sample Holistic rubric below.
5. The Single-Point Rubric
In a single-point rubric, the expectations for the assignment are defined separately for a successful work, much like an analytic rubric. The difference is that criteria are only described for proficiency. Blank spaces are left for the teacher to write in feedback if the work falls above or below this point.
This is my favorite type of rubric. What I love about single-point rubrics is that they leave the teacher room to assess work individually. Instead of defining exactly what might make an artwork weaker or stronger, it leaves space for the teacher to give individual feedback for each student.
Yes, these take more work to fill out. I would not use a single-point rubric for every task. But for large projects, this is a great option. It gives the teacher the opportunity to give personalized feedback for each student. Once again, download an example below!
Rubrics are great tools to help communicate the expectations and assess students. If you choose the right rubric for the task, you will find it will help both you and your students be successful. For a comprehensive look at assessment in the art room, be sure to take a peek at the AOEU course Assessment in Art Education . You’ll leave class with a comprehensive toolkit of lesson plans and organization strategies.

15 Helpful Scoring Rubric Examples for All Grades and Subjects
In the end, they actually make grading easier.
When it comes to student assessment and evaluation, there are a lot of methods to consider. In some cases, testing is the best way to assess a student’s knowledge, and the answers are either right or wrong. But often, assessing a student’s performance is much less clear-cut. In these situations, a scoring rubric is often the way to go, especially if you’re using standards-based grading . Here’s what you need to know about this useful tool, along with lots of rubric examples to get you started.
What is a scoring rubric?
In the United States, a rubric is a guide that lays out the performance expectations for an assignment. It helps students understand what’s required of them, and guides teachers through the evaluation process. (Note that in other countries, the term “rubric” may instead refer to the set of instructions at the beginning of an exam. To avoid confusion, some people use the term “scoring rubric” instead.)
A rubric generally has three parts:
- Performance criteria: These are the various aspects on which the assignment will be evaluated. They should align with the desired learning outcomes for the assignment.
- Rating scale: This could be a number system (often 1 to 4) or words like “exceeds expectations, meets expectations, below expectations,” etc.
- Indicators: These describe the qualities needed to earn a specific rating for each of the performance criteria. The level of detail may vary depending on the assignment and the purpose of the rubric itself.
Rubrics take more time to develop up front, but they help ensure more consistent assessment, especially when the skills being assessed are more subjective. A well-developed rubric can actually save teachers a lot of time when it comes to grading. What’s more, sharing your scoring rubric with students in advance often helps improve performance . This way, students have a clear picture of what’s expected of them and what they need to do to achieve a specific grade or performance rating.

Types of Rubric
There are three basic rubric categories, each with its own purpose.

This type of rubric combines all the scoring criteria in a single scale. They’re quick to create and use, but they have drawbacks. If a student’s work spans different levels, it can be difficult to decide which score to assign. They also make it harder to provide feedback on specific aspects.
Traditional letter grades are a type of holistic rubric. So are the popular “hamburger rubric” and “ cupcake rubric ” examples. Learn more about holistic rubrics here.

Analytic rubrics are much more complex and generally take a great deal more time up front to design. They include specific details of the expected learning outcomes, and descriptions of what criteria are required to meet various performance ratings in each. Each rating is assigned a point value, and the total number of points earned determines the overall grade for the assignment.
Though they’re more time-intensive to create, analytic rubrics actually save time while grading. Teachers can simply circle or highlight any relevant phrases in each rating, and add a comment or two if needed. They also help ensure consistency in grading, and make it much easier for students to understand what’s expected of them.

A developmental rubric is a type of analytic rubric, but it’s used to assess progress along the way rather than determining a final score on an assignment. The details in these rubrics help students understand their achievements, as well as highlight the specific skills they still need to improve.
Developmental rubrics are essentially a subset of analytic rubrics. They leave off the point values, though, and focus instead on giving feedback using the criteria and indicators of performance.

Rubric Submitted by Marianne Galyk
Form adapted using criteria submitted by Patty Knott ( see note below )
Note from Patty Knott
I often make entirely original rubrics, this one is borrowed from many sources. I think some of this may have come from Marvin Bartel. The important thing in designing rubrics is that YOU believe what you are evaluating is important and you consider what the students think is important. Rubrics are a collaboration between student and teacher. A student needs to know what good or excellent "looks like " as compared to an average. With each rubric I also give reflection questions. I ask them to write about the work of another student and really question them selves as to why they respond to this work. They assign adjectives to the work -- they tell how they are "moved." I also ask with each work "what do you want me to consider in evaluating what you did?" Most often the answer is effort or experimenting. And that is why composition and technique do not hold higher regard from investigating and problem solving.
I offer the "5" column so if a student can justify that he/she went beyond presumed expectations, I will bump up in that category. I always expect that a student will go beyond in some way that I didn't anticipate.
I've been using rubrics long before they became the thing to do. I never knew any other way to evaluate art work. My numbers are qualified beyond good and excellent, etc. They need to know what good is. It's the only way rubrics work. I don't ever just check off boxes, I make lots of comments. My grading has become much easier since I initiated daily objective logs. I make a weekly sheet for each student to complete. They enter their objectives for the day at the beginning of the period and reflect on progress at the end. I read these each day and make brief comments. This is also a way for the students to ask me questions when I don't get around to see each one during the period. Since this takes care of attendance, I just spend the time reviewing rather than taking roll. It allows me to give individual prompts. I have established it as routine, so it's not a big chore. The kids expect it and it keeps them on task. I think kids understand and want honest evaluations. They too often underestimate what they have done, and, will admit when they slack. Work with them to make the dialogue and always understand that sometimes they deviate for a reason. ~ Patty Knott

Rubric Best Practices, Examples, and Templates
Instructors have many tasks to perform during the semester, including grading assignments and assessments. Feedback on performance is a critical factor in helping students improve and succeed. Grading rubrics can provide more consistent feedback for students and create efficiency for the instructor/grader.
A rubric is a scoring tool that identifies the different criteria relevant to an assignment, assessment, or learning outcome and states the possible levels of achievement in a specific, clear, and objective way. Use rubrics to assess project-based student work, including essays, group projects, creative endeavors, and oral presentations. Rubrics are helpful for instructors because they can help them communicate expectations to students and assess student work fairly and efficiently. Finally, rubrics can provide students with informative feedback on their strengths and weaknesses so that they can reflect on their performance and work on areas that need improvement.
How to Get Started
Best practices, moodle how-to guides.
- Workshop Recording (Fall 2022)
- Workshop Registration
Step 1: Define the Purpose
The first step in the rubric-creation process is to define the purpose of the assignment or assessment for which you are creating a rubric. To do this, consider the following questions:
- What is the assignment?
- Does the assignment break down into different or smaller tasks?
- Are these tasks equally important as the main assignment?
- What are the learning objectives for the assignment?
- What do you want students to demonstrate through the completion of this assignment?
- What would an excellent assignment look like?
- How would you describe an acceptable assignment?
- How would you describe an assignment that falls below expectations?
- What kind of feedback do you want to give students for their work?
- Do you want/need to give them a grade? If so, do you want to give them a single overall grade or detailed feedback based on a variety of criteria?
- Do you want to give students specific feedback that will help them improve their future work?
Step 2: Decide What Kind of Rubric You Will Use
Types of rubrics: holistic, analytic/descriptive, single-point
Holistic Rubric. A holistic rubric consists of a single scale with all the criteria to be included in the evaluation (such as clarity, organization, mechanics, etc.) being considered together. With a holistic rubric, the rater or grader assigns a single score (usually on a 1-4 or 1-6 point scale) based on an overall judgment of the student’s work. The rater matches an entire piece of student work to a single description on the scale.
Advantages of holistic rubrics:
- Place an emphasis on what learners can demonstrate rather than what they cannot
- Save time by minimizing the number of decisions to be made
- Can be used consistently across raters, provided they have all been trained
Disadvantages of holistic rubrics:
- Do not provide specific feedback for improvement
- Can be difficult to choose a score when a student’s work is at varying levels across the criteria
- Criteria cannot be weighted
Analytic/Descriptive Rubric . An analytic rubric resembles a grid with the criteria for an assignment listed in the left column and with levels of performance listed across the top row, often using numbers and/or descriptive tags. The cells within the center of the rubric may be left blank or may contain descriptions of what the specified criteria look like for each level of performance. When scoring with an analytic rubric, each of the criteria is scored individually.
Advantages of analytic rubrics:
- Provide feedback on areas of strength or weakness
- Each criterion can be weighted to reflect its relative importance
Disadvantages of analytic rubrics:
- More time-consuming to create and use than a holistic rubric
- May not be used consistently across raters unless the rubrics are well defined
- May limit personalized feedback to help students improve
Single-Point Rubric . Similar to an analytic/descriptive rubric in that it breaks down the components of an assignment into different criteria. The detailed performance descriptors are only for the level of proficiency. Feedback space is provided for instructors to give individualized comments to help students improve and/or show where they excelled beyond the proficiency descriptors.
Advantages of single-point rubrics:
- Easier to create than an analytic/descriptive rubric
- More likely that students will read the descriptors
- Areas of concern and excellence are open-ended removes a focus on the grade/points
- May increase student creativity in project-based assignments
- Requires more work for instructors writing feedback
Step 3: Define the Criteria
Ask yourself: What knowledge and skills are required for the assignment/assessment? Make a list of these, group and label them, and eliminate any that are not critical.
Helpful strategies for defining grading criteria:
- Review the learning objectives for the course; use the assignment prompt, existing grading checklists, peer response sheets, comments on previous work, past examples of student work, etc.
- Try describing A/B/C work.
- Consider “sentence starters” with verbs describing student performance from Bloom’s Taxonomy or other terms to indicate various levels of performance, i.e., presence to absence, complete to incomplete, many to some to none, major to minor, consistent to inconsistent, always to usually to sometimes to rarely
- Collaborate with co-instructors, teaching assistants, and other colleagues
- Brainstorm and discuss with students
- Can they be observed and measured?
- Are they important and essential?
- Are they distinct from other criteria?
- Are they phrased in precise, unambiguous language?
- Revise the criteria as needed
- Consider how you will weigh them in relation to each other
Step 4: Design the Rating Scale
Most ratings scales include between 3 and 5 levels. Consider the following questions:
- Given what students are able to demonstrate in this assignment/assessment, what are the possible levels of achievement?
- Will you use numbers or descriptive labels for these levels?
- If you choose descriptive labels, what labels are most appropriate? Will you assign a number to those labels?
- In what order will you list these levels — from lowest to highest or vice versa?
Step 5: Write Descriptions for Each Level of the Rating Scale
Create statements of expected performance at each level of the rubric. For an analytic rubric, do this for each particular criterion of the rubric. These descriptions help students understand your expectations and their performance in regard to those expectations.
Start with the top/exemplary work category –what does it look like when a student has achieved excellence in each category? Then look at the “bottom” category –what does it look like when students have not achieved the learning goals in any way? Then add the categories in between.
Also, take into consideration that well-written descriptions:
- Describe observable and measurable behavior
- Use parallel language across the scale
- Indicate the degree to which the standards are met
Step 6: Create your Rubric
- Develop the criteria, rating scale, and descriptions for each level of the rating scale into a rubric
- Include the assignment at the top of the rubric, space permitting
- For reading and grading ease, limit the rubric to a single page, if possible
- Consider the effectiveness of your rubric and revise accordingly
- Create your rubric in a table or spreadsheet in Word, Google Docs, Sheets, etc., and then transfer it by typing it into Moodle. You can also use online tools to create the rubric, but you will still have to type the criteria, indicators, levels, etc., into Moodle. Rubric creators: Rubistar , iRubric
Step 7: Pilot-test your Rubric
Prior to implementing your rubric on a live course, obtain feedback from:
- Teacher Assistants
Also, try out your new rubric on a sample of student work. After you pilot-test your rubric, analyze the results to consider its effectiveness and revise accordingly.
- Use Parallel Language . Make sure that the language from column to column is similar and that syntax and wording correspond. Of course, the words will change for each section or assignment, as will the expectations, but in terms of readability, make sure that the rubric can be easily read from left to right or vice versa. In addition, if you have an indicator described in one category, it will need to be described in the next category, whether it is about “having included” or “not having included” something. This is all about clarity and transparency to students.
- Use Student-Friendly Language . If students can’t understand the rubric, it will not be useful for guiding instruction, reflection, and assessment. If you want students to engage in using the rubric, they have to understand it. Make sure the language is learning-level appropriate. If you use academic language or concepts, you will need to teach those concepts.
- Use the Rubric with Your Students . You have to use the rubric with the students. It means nothing to them if you don’t. For students to find the rubric useful in terms of their learning, they must see a reason for using it. Students should understand that the rubric is there to help them learn, reflect, and self-assess. If students use a rubric, they will understand the expectations and their relevance to learning.
- Don’t Use Too Many Columns . The rubric needs to be comprehensible and organized. Pick the right amount of columns so that the criteria flow logically and naturally across levels.
- Common Rubrics and Templates are Awesome . Avoid rubric fatigue, as in creating rubrics to the point where you just can’t do it anymore. This can be done with common rubrics that students see across multiple classroom activities and through creating templates that you can alter slightly as needed. Design those templates for learning targets or similar performance tasks in your classroom. It’s easy to change these types of rubrics later. Figure out your common practices and create a single rubric your team can use.
- Rely on Descriptive Language. The most effective descriptions are those that use specific descriptions. This means avoiding words like “good” and “excellent.” At the same time, don’t rely on numbers, such as a number of resources, as your crutch. Instead of saying, “find excellent sources” or “use three sources,” focus your rubric language on the quality use of whatever sources students find and on the best possible way of aligning that data to the work. It isn’t about the number of sources, and “excellent” is too vague for students. Be specific and descriptive.

Art Essay Writing Guide - All You Need to Know
Everything you should know about writing an essay on art.
Many students will agree that an art essay is a difficult task. A question like "how to write an essay about art" is often enough to make stem feel stuck with it. Well, if you have a passion for art, then, indeed, it gets easier. But, to create a really incredible paper you will need to get closer to the outline. Pick an interesting issue or theme and conclude it properly. That is why you need some aid to help yourself. Get it in this art essay writing guide!
What Is Meant By Art Essay?
If you want to start writing an art essay, you should understand its essence and know what you are required to do. Generally, an art essay is not similar to other types of writing; here we provide you with the essence that entirely revolves around the art. It's a very elaborate discipline and it's amazing because you have a wide choice of topics for your future essay. Well, what's an art essay? It's a paper that opens the topic and makes it clear to the person. The key thing here is that you must choose the most appropriate and useful topic for your paper that will be explained well in your art essay.
The Secrets of Crafting An Art Essay
It's impossible to count how many genres the art contains, and for sure you'd better choose a certain field to cover in your paper rather than write an essay that generally speaks about art. You're free to choose from anything: music, Greek art, literature, or even visual art. Choose a field that interests you the most to showcase your creative side.
You need to present the best essay that has well-researched information. You cannot go with a random or unfamiliar topic. Still, if you do so, the research will probably help you understand the concept and do an excellent job. Your research should include brushing up on many various sources of information, including books, journals, and even an online database. Anything you are squaring down for your choice, including well-known musicians or artists of the particular field should be analyzed and presented in your paper.
We will provide you with a great art essay topic list at the end of this article, so you won't have to think of making up your own.
How to start an art essay and what to include?
Starting any paper is a kind of a problem. Describe why this topic is important and what it meant to the art anyway. After your reader familiarizes with the topic you stated in your essay, you can give him the data you researched. Every fact (no matter what kind of fact) has to be cited with a proof article at the end of an art essay.
You have to watch out for the progress of your art essay; keeping the flow is very important. If you are getting off the track and talking about something else, it could be a hindrance. You should always keep in mind the basics of your topic and address it exclusively in your work.
The Main Paragraphs Of Your Essay
The obligatory requirement for writing any essay is to include counterarguments and examples. It would help to make your point come across clearly to the reader, and your paper will be much more interesting for people. However, you should also keep in mind the basic points, for example, using suitable language, correcting all mistakes, and avoiding vagueness. Also, avoid grammatical errors, do not repeat words often, avoid using unnecessary expressions and surely go about writing more short sentences. Combine both short and long sentences to improve your flow and your paper's readability.
Writing a Conclusion For Art Essay?
Lastly, an art essay is incomplete without a proper conclusion. This is a very important section of your paper; you must conclude it on the right note. Here is a list of tips to make it easier:
Link your conclusion paragraph to the first one to answer the questions, and you can rewrite your first sentence to make an ending point.
- Do not use these words.
"In summary," "in conclusion," and those kinds of phrases. Why? When you are talking to people, it is okay to say it so that people will give more attention to it, but it applies only to oral speech. Using these words in writing will just disturb you because the reader can tell when the paper will end.
- Open discussion
The whole essay is a comparison of different people's statements. You show all the facts and then make a conclusion. But do not close the actual discussion. It's better to sort your sources from secondary to primary. That makes more sense. If you are writing about the painting, it may be something that the author said about it, for example. This way, you are closing the discussion without closing it off.
Art essay topics examples

- Differences between different art periods
