Abstract

The study describes the need to have a systematic, at the same time "fit for purpose" rubric that will enable tutors to assess students' performance constructively and reliably in Problem - Based Learning (PBL). A 4-level assessment rubric having 10- performance objects with descriptors, 5 each for the two sessions of PBL was developed. Faculty and student feedback in the form of questionnaire was taken. Rubrics helped create a PBL environment that rewards fair and accurate assessment.
