I was wondering if a rubric that measures writing in terms of Focus and Unity, Organization, Development of Ideas, Voice and Style, Written Conventions can be used to measure the adequacy of a summary. Normally, a rubric with the aforementioned components are utilized to grade longer writing assignments, such as essays and responses to literature. A summary is way shorter than the said longer writing assignments, and this type of rubric might not be appropriate. Can somebody give me some feedback?

A specialized rubric is needed for writing that summarizes a longer work. Certainly it must include the adequacy of the summary in representing the main ideas or logical flow of the summarized text. Succinctness, faithfulness to the ideas or themes in the original, organization, voice and style, grammar and effective use of vocabulary might be a good set of criteria.

What does the length have to do with the rubric? Summarizing War and Peace by Tolstoy would take quite a few more words than The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry.

True. Now my doubts have been clarified. Thanks for your answer.
