Exploring Rubrics for Student Assessment

A rubric is an assessment tool that provides the criteria for evaluating a piece of student work. Specific levels of performance are listed along with a rating system such as need improvement, acceptable, or excellent. Rubrics can be used by both students and teachers. For a silly look at rubrics, check out the AsWeSeeIt Rubric Page. Try the following general rubric links.

Using Rubric Generator

A rubric generator is an online or software-based tool to quickly creating rubrics. In some cases, the outline, structure, or template is provided and the user simply enters the criteria. In other cases, the rubric is automatically created and the user just makes modifications. Read the article called Automating Authentic Assessment With Rubrics: Technology... The Future of Education? to learn about the philosophy of using automated assessment tools. Although this article was writing a while ago, the technology is finally here to support the idea. Try the first two rubric generators below. Then, explore the other options.
