Research Guidance Rubric for Assignment Design

Object Detail

First-year students learn best from assignments that provide concrete and specific guidance on research methods. We can help you design assignments that will guide your students toward effective research. One tool we use in consultation with Signature Course faculty is the Research Guidance Rubric for Assignment Design. This tool promotes assignments that include:

  • Clear expectations about source requirements
  • A clear rationale and context for resource requirements
  • Focus on the research process
  • Library engagement
