Rubric Title: Oral Presentation Rubric
  1. Select a rating scale format for your rubric by using the pull-down menu labeled "Select Rating Scale".
  2. You can edit the rating scale by typing in the textfields on the top row.
  3. When creating the rubric, always start with the top row and don't skip any rows.
  4. Use the pull-down menu in the first row to select the category you want to appear first in your rubric. Then choose the pull-down menu in the second row to select the second category.
  5. You don't have to use all the categories. If you don't use some categories there should be rows at the bottom of your rubric that still have the pull-down menu set on 'Select Category'."
  6. You can edit the rubric by making changes (add text, change text, delete text) in the text area boxes in any row. Note that if you change one box, you will probably want to make similar changes in the other boxes in that same row.
  7. When you are done customizing your rubric, click the "Make a Printable Rubric" button at the bottom of the form.
  8. Your customized rubric is saved on the server. You can use the printed copy as a master for xeroxing or to re-create the rubric in RubiStar for future classes.
