The aim of this paper is to present the psychometric properties of a rubric for assessing academic writing at university level. The study evaluated the production of an academic text in a sample of 745 freshmen from 17 academic programs. Through the rubric, trained correctors evaluated the essay. Reliability and factorial structure of the instrument as well as reliability between the test correctors were obtained. The results show that the exploratory factor analysis provides evidence of the factorial structure. Due to the high reliability indices, the rubric can be considered as a reliable and easy applicable instrument.
