WGU Scoring Rubrics Evaluation Information


WGU evaluation faculty judge performance assessment submissions using rubrics that include various aspects of competence and a scale that measures it. Performance Assessment tasks are evaluated using the following scales:



 

3-Level Descriptive Rubric

•    Not Evident
•    Approaching Competence
•    Competent

A score of Competent is required in each rubric aspect to pass the assessment

.

 

3-Level  Rubric:

0 = Unsatisfactory


1 = Needs revision


2 = Satisfactory

A score of 2 in each rubric aspect is required to pass the task

 

4-Level Rubric:

1 = Unacceptable


2 = Needs Revisions


3 = Meets Standard


4 = Exemplary

To pass the assessment students must do one of the following:


•    Receive a score of 3 in each rubric aspect, or
•    Receive a 2 on one rubric aspect, and a score of 3 in all of the other rubric aspects

 

Alternative 4-Level Rubric:

0 = Unacceptable


1 = Needs Revisions


2 = Meets Standard


3 = Exemplary


In order to pass the assessment, students must do one of the following:


•    Receive a score of 2 in each rubric aspect, or
•    Receive a 1 on one rubric aspect, and a score of 2 in all of the other rubric aspects.


5-Level Rubric:


0 = Unsatisfactory


1 = Does not meet standard


2 = Minimally competent


3 = Competent


4 = Highly competent
 

If an assessment is a lower-division undergraduate program assessment (these performance assessments are denoted with an asterisk), students need a score of at least 2 in each rubric aspect to pass the task. If the assessment is an upper-division undergraduate program-specific assessment or graduate program assessment, students need a score of at least 3 in each rubric aspect to pass the task.
 
While the rubric aspects are designed to align to the task directions, the rubric may break down the directions into smaller steps in order to focus the assessment.
 
Students should discuss evaluation results with their program mentor, refer back to their course of study and consult the course instructor before attempting revisions.
