What are General Education Institutional Rubrics SSC?

SSC Rubrics Image
  • General education outcomes assessments demonstrate how SSC students are performing on important, institutional skills throughout the General Education class requirements for associates degree programs.
  • General education outcomes assessment is one of the stated Goals for the college and it is required by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for accreditation.
  • General Education Institutional Rubrics are pre-designed and ready for instructors to use in D2L.  Instructors just have to attach the D2L Rubric to an assignment and then grade an assignment based on that rubric.
    • Here is a list of the current General Education Institutional Rubrics in D2L:
      • SSC Oral Communication Skills Rubric
      • SSC Problem-Solving Skills Rubric (Assessment of Effective Use of Critical Thinking Skills)
      • SSC Technology Skills (Assessment of the use of Technology)
      • SSC Written Communication Skills Rubric
      • Coming Soon! SSC Multiculturalism Rubric

What are Course Level Rubrics SSC?

  • Course level rubrics are usually created by the instructor in D2L (unless they’d like to adapt a general education rubric above). The instructor then attaches their D2L rubric to an assignment and grades the assignment based on that rubric. 
  • Course level assessments begin with Student Learning Outcomes listed on the syllabus of each course and those outcomes are then aligned to a rubric for a particular course assignment.
