The usefulness of rubrics to enhance instruction has long been established. One way to induce students to attend carefully to rubrics is require that the students to score themselves and submit completed rubrics with the associated assignments. The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how these kinds of “self-scoring rubrics” can be easily constructed and employed within an electronic environment, making their use practical for both students and faculty. A variety of electronic solutions (many of them from the business community) will be demonstrated, including editable rubrics created in Rich Text Format, PDF format (most notably using the PDF form tool) and HTML. Rubric construction tools in Angel, Blackboard, and TaskStream will also be addressed. Last, examples of each of the aforementioned options will be shown, emanating from an online course taught through Canisius College, Buffalo, NY, USA.
