Evaluation rubrics are a powerful and influential approach to evaluation-specific methodology that can be used in collaborative/participatory or independent evaluations to build a clear, shared understanding of how quality, value, and effectiveness are defined. Evaluative rubrics make explicit the basis for evaluative judgments about effectiveness or performance, as well as importance. 

Drawing from their experience of using rubrics in many evaluation settings, the presenters in this panel session will provide an overview of rubrics, as well as more detail about different kind of rubrics and their uses, their strengths and weaknesses, and the ability of rubrics to explore and integrate shared values providing a clear and transparent basis for making decisions.
