Rubrics and formative evaluation

Many people still believe that evaluating with rubrics is formative evaluation and, in many cases, it is not. A rubric, in fact, provides clear criteria when evaluating a task. Now, this can be done so that the student detects his mistakes and his strong points and reflects on his learning (formative evaluation) or it can be done simply mechanically to grade tasks (summative or certifying evaluation).
