When building rubrics, it could be very valuable to be able to include hyperlinks or basic formatting to criterion details and rating descriptions. It would make the feedback/feedforward loop much more valuable! Of course, these wouldn't be required in order to use a rubric, but adding the flexibility could definitely change the way some teachers use them as a tool with students.
Recently, I read a blog post by Jennifer Gonzalez of Cult of Pedagogy that demonstrates how Hyper Rubrics can change the way that students interact with rubrics. Students can see them as actionable "next steps" or having the value of linking back to resources that put the level of achievement or skill into context for the learner.
My hope would be that the added hyperlinks would encourage students to reflect upon the rating they receive and have resources ready for them as they think about goal setting, revision, and growth.
