Rubryric is a rubrics-based assessment tool. Graders use pre-written feedback phrases to construct feedback, which speeds up assessment as all feedback does not have to be written manually. It also ensures consistent grading across graders, as the submissions are graded according to pre-defined evaluative criteria, as opposed to "gut feeling".


  • Teacher creates a rubric (ie. a set of feedback phrases and evaluative criteria).
  • Students submit their work to the system.
  • Submissions are distributed to graders (one or many).
  • Graders assess the submissions and construct feedback using pre-written feedback phrases, but can also write custom feedback or modify the phrases.
  • Feedback is sent to students by email.
