Aims: this study (Research Article) aimed to investigate the effect of "rubric" as a measure of learning products and process on the health student knowledge and attitude performance. Methods: this study is a semi-experimental design, pre-test- posttest with control group. A statistical population are khalkhal medical college undergraduate that have chosen computer lessons in 91-90 second semester. Study samples included the two classroom computers in the health disciplines who were randomly assigned to two groups (20 students) and control (20 students). Learning test designed by the researcher (reliability 0.75) and attitude toward test questionnaire (reliability 0.70) was used to collect data. It also to analyzes the methods of descriptive statistics (FREQUENCY, MEAN and SD) and was used to evaluate the research hypotheses, T-TEST, MANOVA. Results: the findings indicated that learning and attitude scores of students in the experimental group was significantly increased compared with control group p<0.05, f2, 35 = 43.98 Conclusion: The results derived from this study indicated that students who had been trained by "rubric" had better learn. Interviews and field observations have been attributed mainly due to the tangibility of the rubric assignments, transparent evaluation criteria and the rubric guidelines role.
