Rubrics are an effective teaching and learning guide, as well as an assessment tool. Rubrics should always be the first thing that is provided to students when an assignment is given. Students can then use the tool as a guide for their project or a writing assignment. The rubrics I create all use criteria according to the letters of the word "SCORE." This makes it easy for both students and teachers to remember!
Here's an example! Use this rubric for In Class Assignments.
