  • Being a public declaration of expectations makes it not hidden, and especially not dependent on teacher mood swings.
  • The parts of the rubric call attention to parts of my assignment so I can revise (improve) it. Rubric comes from the Latin: Rubrica, which means: highlight in red, used to call attention to something (not to mark errors).
  • Grids, feedback systems, surveys should have EVEN numbers of choices, so people are forced to make a choice. If you use ODD number of choices, people will tend to chose a middle one! Results will not be as accurate.
  • This is the hardest part! It tells the student what the levels of performance should look like very clearly.
  • Rubrics give students guidelines to evaluate their own work. Whenever you can QUANTIFY – do it!
  • Issues: Language accessibility Helpful to show, don’t tell Negative language (power of language) Language is very subjective Hard to define qualitative issues
  • Model aspects (qualitative) you want students to learn (such as something insightful and/or original).
  • You don’t have to use the rubric all at once! You can do some parts at a time with students.
  • Rubrics are very skill oriented. You can use them to tally grades. So a kid who gets a B- knows why and where s/he can improve.
  • You don’t change the scale, you can change the task. Rubrics deal also with motivation and how I am related to others.
  • We need to teach the students to use the rubrics as a TOOL (not only as an evaluation). Create a habit of mind = self-assess.
  • Grade not using the rubric then grade with the rubric Do a test run
