ADDITIONAL EXTERNAL WEB RESOURCES
RubiStar is a tool that generates rubrics for lots of assignment types. It can be a helpful way to get started. Although it is not designed for college level, it offers great ideas for areas of assessment and words that might be used in the descriptors.
This site has well developed rubrics for many essential skills (i.e. critical thinking, team learning, written and oral communication). Although you have to provide some personal information before accessing the rubrics, it is well worth it.
Feel free to set up a consultation with one of the faculty in CTL to discuss your rubrics.
