A fact from Rubric appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 13 February 2008, and was viewed approximately 1,822 times (disclaimer)(check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
...that rubrics were originally anything written in red letters in a manuscript, but now most often mean instructions, especially for officiating clergy, or scoring tools for tests in education?"
Does anyone have an actual example of a rubric (preferrably online)? Might be worth adding to the article. -- Felix Wiemann 20:05, 16 January 2006 (UTC) Done Johnbod (talk) 00:13, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
Page Rubric started about teacher's 5-column rubrics, then people added sections about other sorts of rubrics, until someone pulled the text of each section out as separate pages, leaving the remaining skeleton as a disambig page.
Page Rubric (disambiguation) was started on 15 Feb 2009 and only has been edited 3 times, so I merged it into page Rubric to get rid of content forking.
I've added a Kelmscott Press image, but I would like to replace it with a non-ecclesiastical example (probably from The Wood Beyond the World) to show the breadth of usage. - PKM (talk) 20:03, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
For now I have added an external link to some representative Kelmscott pages, also links to Roycroft Press examples and a derivative work. - PKM (talk) 20:45, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Further, there are more examples of rubrics in art typography at Ashendene Press and Doves Press. Note to self: make a category for rubrics in the Commons and collect these... - PKM (talk) 21:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
I was under the impression that rubric, in the ecclesiastical sense, was also applied to liturgical calendars to indicate saint's days. The saints so added were then said to have been rubricated and this is the origin of the expression Red letter day, from the days so rubricated. Would be nice if we could find a source for that and include it in the article. Cottonshirtτ 09:08, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
