If you are looking for a fairer and more accurate way to select new hires or evaluate current employees, using rubrics may be just the tool you need. A rubric is a tool that delineates specific expectations for varying levels of competency. Commonly used in teaching situations for appraising research papers or projects and allocating grades, they also help compare potential candidates or existing staff against expectations. They can be used effectively in two situations related to human resources in libraries: evaluation of job candidates and annual performance reviews of existing professionals and paraprofessionals.

This presentation will introduce the topic of rubrics and describe best practices in their construction. We will outline their utility in reviewing job applicants equitably, and then exemplify their use in unbiased performance reviews.
By the end of this webinar participants will:
• learn the basic construction of rubrics
• learn how to apply rubrics in selecting employees
• gain knowledge of how to use rubrics in annual performance reviews
