Abstract: Rubyric is an assessment tool that allows instructors to create assessment rubrics that define the evaluation criteria and the grading scale, and contain feedback phrases for typical scenarios. Because many students typically make similar mistakes, large parts of feedback can be constructed from prewritten phrases, thus speeding up the assessment process. However, the feedback text can be freely edited in order to personalize it. Rubyric also contains an annotation tool that allows reviewers to make markings on the submitted documents. Rubyric makes it possible to give verbose and personalized feedback in large courses by making it easy to reuse feedback phrases, and helps to ensure consistency of grading by forcing reviewers to follow a grading template.
