Research Rubric As in the above example, a rubric is comprised of two components: criteria and levels of performance. For each criterion, the evaluator applying the rubric can determine to what degree the student has met the criterion, i.e., the level of performance. Finally, the rubric above contains a mechanism for assigning a score to each project. The above rubric includes another common, but not a necessary, component of rubrics -- descriptors. Thus, start small. or
