A review of the pedagogical literature shows that rubrics are described by most authors as highly potential assessment tools in teaching, capable of improving the overall teaching-learning processes. They go beyond the traditional understanding of assessment. Rubrics are assessment guidelines used in evaluation. They are characterized by the following:
a. Specify the work to be performed by the student.
b. Assess various stages of performance.
c. Provide meaningful feedback to students.
The widespread use of rubrics as assessment tools in the Anglo-Saxon environment is justified by their potential to meet two basic challenges:
1. They provide teachers with an objective and solid assessment tool whereas students receive a meaningful feedback.
2. The process of assessment and scoring is less time-consuming.
The subjects of Corporal Expression, Gymnastics Skills and Rhythmic Gymnastics (traditionally female gender stereotyped activities) of the new EEES Bachelor Degree of the Faculty of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Madrid include General Competence for Equal Gender. One of the basic skills developed in this competence is the use of non-sexist communication. In order to design a rubric to evaluate the use of “non-sexist communication” in the cross-section competence of Gender Equality within the subjects related to Body Expression Activities Prieto’s patterns (Prieto, 2008) have been used. The rubric designed includes three categories/dimensions with four descriptors for each level: “professional”, “acceptable”, “needs improvement”, “insufficient” or “inadequate”. The three categories/ dimensions proposed are the following:
A. Images, roles and gender-stereotyped models in Body Expression Activities.
B. Visualization and treatment of women and men in the Body Expression Activities.
C. Non-sexist language (name, visualize and equip men and women with the proper language).
