What is the Rubric Feature?

The rubric feature allows you to create an inline rubric that can be completed within GoReact as you critique videos. Rubrics are completely customizable, and can be reused by you as well as shared with others in your organization.

Rubrics can contain categories of items and auto-score totals. The following rubric element types are available:

  • Individual element (possible points for an item)
  • Checkbox element (pts earned/deducted when an item is checked)
  • Numeric scale (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5 rating)
  • Qualitative scale (i.e. Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent)
  • Text response (open text box item)
  • Category and overall totals

How do I Set up a Rubric?

There are three ways to create a rubric:

  • When you create an Activity you will have the option to add a Rubric under the Feedback panel.

Click the "+Rubric" button to open your Library. From here you can select a rubric you have already created or used previously or you can create a new rubric by clicking "+Add Rubric".

  • You may also add a rubric to an Activity that has already been created by selecting the Activity on the dashboard, clicking the Edit  icon, and following the steps above.
  • The third way to create a rubric is by clicking the Library button in the lower right corner of the dashboard. Select Rubrics and then click "+Add Rubric". Note that creating a rubric from your Library will not attach it to an Activity, but the rubric will then be available when adding a rubric during Activity Setup or when editing the settings of an existing Activity.


Working with Rubric Elements

Once you've created a rubric template (or gone in to edit one), you'll see the Rubric Canvas. The main white area is where you'll build your rubric template. On the left is a "palette" of element types that you can drag on to your canvas to customize.

You can add as many categories and individual elements as you like. If you are using it as a scoring rubric, enter the points for each element and the rubric will automatically track the category and overall points for you.

If you have an element you'd like to copy, such as a numeric or qualitative scale that you use repeatedly, just click the white "Copy"  button at the top right corner of the element you wish to duplicate, and it will appear beneath it, ready to customize.


Previewing & Saving the Rubric

At any time, you can click the "Preview" button to see how it will look in live mode for evaluations. Then click "Close Preview" to return to the Editor.

Once your template is complete, click . Your rubric is saved and ready to use!

Auto-save note: Please note that the rubric editor auto-saves continuously, so you'll never lose your work.


Using the Rubric

When a rubric is assigned to an Activity, it will automatically be available to instructors and reviewers who give feedback on a video session. (Currently, peer rubric use is not yet supported.)

Scoring with a rubric: If you have assigned points on any elements in your rubric, then the points earned will automatically be substituted for the usual manually entered score on the presenter's video. Also note that if more than one reviewer complete an evaluation on the rubric, the video session score will be the average of the completed evaluations.

For more on using a rubric for a structured evaluation of a video, see Evaluations under Critiquing a Video.
