Grading Rubrics

One of the fun things that I get my students was to take a knowledge test on logo brands, called 'Got Logo,' that I created specifically for one of our courses. It was made to determine how well my students know their brands. It was a great and fun way to lead-up to the logo design foundation portion of the course (Test your knowledge with 'Got Logo,' At the end of the course, a more serious assessment is needed for the school and program. Students will have a basic to advanced understanding of this mockup course. They will have mastered the basic principles within the platform and will set up a mockup that sets them apart from others. As instructors, we are a guide and facilitates the students to create their ideas. But this happens in a controlled environment. Having a final project allows us to assess whether or not the students have drawn the correct conclusions. The grading rubric that I am attaching for mockups is easily adaptable for other courses as well. I wanted the over-achievers to have something that gave them a sense of accomplishment in what I thought a final project that was designed masterfully! And for those who are under-achievers, who needed a grade to get their certificate, what the bare minimum is needed. There might be an easier method, but I have found that my students reacted more when the marks were worth 150 points versus 100 points! How do you use the rubrics? There are four levels, from below expectations to beyond expectationsA scale from zero to ten is used (0-10). Half marks are given at the 7.5, 8.5, and 9.5For this example, the total mark is 150 points, worth 75% of the final gradeHow do I calculate this?Scale x Points = MarksIf a student is given an '8' for Mock-Up Assessment = 0.80 x 50 points = 40 marksWhole example:8 / 9 / 10 / 10 / 9 / 1040 / 22.5 / 20 / 20 / 18 / 15 = 135.5 / 150 (x 75%) = 67.75 / 75
