Rubric is one of the tools teachers use to assess students’ performance. This research focuses on whether or not the use of rubrics has any impact on students’ performance. This study has reviewed the impact from both students’ and teachers’ perspectives. To this end, a questionnaire survey was conducted among 18 students of BRAC University. Another questionnaire survey was conducted among 46 Medhabikash students of BRAC University. In addition, a topic was provided to the same group of students (Medhabikash students) to write an essay. The same topic was given again with a set of rubrics to write another essay with a view to observing the differences. Besides, a semi-open ended questionnaire was administered among 8 teachers from the same University to see their perspectives about the impact of rubrics on the students’ performance. The results show a significant impact of rubrics on students’ performance along with a strong positive attitude of both students and teachers towards the use of rubrics. A wide scope of further research is open in this area.
