How to create effective Feedback Rubrics – The ebook

This is an updated version of our popular 2017 Guide to Feedback Rubrics with new examples and more great insight into how to implement peer feedback and rubrics.

Feedback rubrics are so much more than a matrix, or a single point rubric. A feedback rubric ties together all the good parts of other rubrics and encourages students to give each other constructive and effective feedback. We have been curating rubrics and developing this guide to feedback rubrics specifically with peer feedback and peer assessment in mind.
