Rubrics generally divide expectations into specific categories and offer a continuum of possible scores within each category.
A rubric enables clear, specific, and transparent assessment, and looking at students’ rubrics can help teachers make note of patterns and plan next steps.
Rubrics also enable teachers to assess student work more objectively and fairly, since they know exactly what to look for.
How to Create a Rubric To create a rubric, start by choosing an assignment that will require you to grade based on multiple levels or subjective factors.
This might be a writing assignment, social studies presentation, group project, etc.
