Abstract

Rubrics are being used in a wide variety of disciplines in higher education to evaluate the assessments and provide feedback to students. Rubrics are traditionally implemented as paper-based table to grade assessments and provide feedback. The advancement of technology has integrated the Rubric Tool into Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Blackboard to facilitate online marking. In this conceptual paper, we aim to evaluate the effectiveness of the Rubric Tool. We propose an integrated conceptual framework applying various theories from the extant literature to assess the effectiveness of the Rubric Tool. Furthermore, we use the framework to evaluate the effectiveness of the Blackboard LMS Rubric Tool applied in an undergraduate course for grading assessments under the settings of an Australian International University in Asia.
