Assignment Design Rubric for Research Assignments

Assessment Resource Description

First-year students learn best from assignments that provide concrete and specific guidance on research methods.  Librarians can help you design assignments that will guide your students toward effective research, and this rubric is one tool we use to do that.

Apply the Assignment Design Rubric for Research Assignments to your assignment to ensure that it has:

  • Clear expectations about source requirements
  • A clear rationale and context for resource requirements
  • Focus on the research process
  • Library engagement
