Traditional assessment for our learners’ performance in school are still useful and effective but due to the fast changing phase of learning environment and styles we cannot deny that even the tool for assessment must be appropriate and in line to the learning standards and goals of the 21st century learning. It is therefore concluded by educational planners and implementers the use of performance criteria in form of rubrics. Each criterion included in the matrix/grid is flexible and can be changed/improved by the teacher depending on the activity to be conducted or even just making a simple output.

“A rubric for assessment, usually in the form of a matrix or grid, is a tool used to interpret and grade students' work against criteria and standards. Rubrics are sometimes called "criteria sheets", "grading schemes", or "scoring guides". Rubrics can be designed for any content domain.
A rubric makes explicit a range of assessment criteria and expected performance standards. Assessors evaluate a student's performance against all of these, rather than assigning a single subjective score. A rubric:
  • handed out to students during an assessment task briefing makes them aware of all expectations related to the assessment task, and helps them evaluate their own work as it progresses
  • helps teachers apply consistent standards when assessing qualitative tasks, and promotes consistency in shared marking.
You can use rubrics to structure discussions with students about different levels of performance on an assessment task. They can employ the rubric during peer assessment and self-assessment, to generate and justify assessments. Once you've familiarised students with the idea of rubrics, you can have them assist in the rubric design process, thus taking more responsibility for their own learning.
Assessment rubrics:
  • provide a framework that clarifies assessment requirements and standards of performance for different grades. In this, they support assessment as learning; students can see what is important and where to focus their learning efforts.
  • enable very clear and consistent communication with students about assessment requirements and about how different levels of performance earn different grades. They allow assessors to give very specific feedback to students on their performance.
  • when students are involved in their construction, encourage them to take responsibility for their performance
  • when used for self-assessment and peer assessment, make students aware of assessment processes and procedures, enhance their meta-cognitive awareness, and improve their capacity to assess their own work
  • can result in richer feedback to students, giving them a clearer idea where they sit in terms of an ordered progression towards increased expertise in a learning domain.
  • by engaging staff teams in rubric-based conversations about quality, help them develop a shared language for talking about learning and assessment.
  • help assessors efficiently and reliably interpret and grade students' work.
  • systematically illuminate gaps and weaknesses in students' understanding against particular criteria, helping teachers target areas to address.” --- UNSW, Sydney.
