Rubrics

Rubrics are essential  to any classroom evaluation.  Rubrics are a sort of scoring guide for assessment that may be subjective; however, they are also used to provide a clear cut explanation to why a student achieves a certain grade in any subject matter.  It is important to be able to explicitly assess a student’s performance by evaluating their work and by providing feedback.  Furthermore, rubrics definitely help come parent-teacher time when as a teacher, you can easily explain to one’s parent why one student achieved an “A” while their student only got a “B”.  Below are a couple of examples of rubrics, one with a letter grade/percentage system and the other one with a 1-4 point scale.  Remember that rubrics may be modified according to a classroom’s needs and a teacher’s point of view.
