Analytic rubrics are described as the following by D2L: "Most rubrics are analytic.  An analytic rubric breaks performnce into multiple criteria.  You assess each criterion separately, resulting in an overall assessment score.  For example, an analytic rubric for assessing essays could have separate criterion for spelling, grammar, and expression.  Each criterion can be assessed as poor, good, or excellent, resulting in an overall assessment that adequately evaluates performance."
