In this section of the hub you will find a short guide developed specifically for Maynooth University staff on the topic of ‘Using rubrics to promote learning’. This guide offers an overview of what we mean by ‘rubrics’, presents some examples of rubrics, explores the purposes of rubrics including those around supporting student learning and success, and offers practical advice around designing rubrics. The guide includes some suggestions around what readers might want to do next, under this topic, and a list of references to resources and research.

The Maynooth University guide is followed by a curated list of resources, some of which have been developed specifically for Maynooth University, and others which we have sourced directly, or adapted, from other HEIs. Each resource has a short description and includes a note of the home institution from which the resource was sourced, where applicable.
