Rubrics can be used to explain assessment criteria to students prior to submitting and improves the consistency of feedback to students. Rubrics can also help to clarify and speed the marking process for staff and improve the consistency of feedback to students. 

How long does it take?

A new rubric takes less than 1 hour to set up. When one senior academic moved to using rubrics he found it much quicker to mark assignments, effectively halving the time it took to mark each essay. Another benefit this academic found when using rubrics was that it clarifies the marking process for teaching assistants and gives them confidence that they are marking uniformly.
