Definition of Rubric:

                  "A rubric is a printed set of guidelines that distinguishes performances or products of
                  different quality. A rubric has descriptors that define what to look for at each level of
                  performance. Rubrics also often have indicators providing specific examples or tell-tale
                  signs of things to look for in work."
