Assessment and grading: assessment of students’ performance in a course is an important task that relates to both assigning grades and giving feedback. The selection of appropriate assessment methods in a course depends on many factors, such as, the course outcomes, the topics, the course level, available resources, and the delivery of course contents. Alignment of the assessment methods adopted with the course outcomes, and delivery of contents is essential. Traditional exam based assessment tools are not suitable for assessing many of the course outcomes, especially those related to professional skills. Alternative methods to assess such outcomes may include practical projects, formal reports and presentations, hands-on activities in the lab, etc. Rubrics are in particular suitable for evaluating students’ works under non-exam assessment methods. A rubric is a tool that allows interpretation and grading using pre-set marking criteria or indicators and expected performance standards. The grades assigned to students’ performances should be based on the assessment and should be consistent with the university grading policy.
