click to enlargeThis analytic rubric is an example of evaluating oral presentation against 7 criteria (organisation, critical thinking, clarity, objectives, hypothesis, method, visual aids). The VU Grading scheme is set - the maximum point possible in the Fail level is 49 points. Note that for the rest of the levels, they are set up to be little over the usual grading scheme - e.g. For High Distinction, the maximum is 84, instead of 80. This comes down to the balancing of points and levels across the rubric.

click to enlargeThis is a report writing rubric based on analytic points system and VU grading scheme. The criteria for this rubric includes content, organisation, word choice, presentation and reference. Currently, the points are allocated to be the lowest point of the range - e.g. Under the criterion of 'Content', 80% of 45points are 36. However, as you can see in the range explained above (e.g. HD (36-45)), when you are actually marking the assignments using this rubric, you can manually type in any points within this range.
