ABSTRACT
The article discusses the method of teaching and learning evaluation through the use of a rubric, a scoring tool for subjective assessment. In order that teachers and students may grow and develop skills in the classroom, understanding and developing the right kind of rubric is needed. A rubric is a set of criteria that illustrate the varying degrees of levels of development in any activity. The purposes include evaluation of students' knowledge and measurement of teaching. Also, a rubric that is well constructed can measure teacher's self-assessment.
