I use this quarter-page sheet on most homework assignments that involve writing. It allows me to give them targeted feedback quickly. It is designed to help them by giving them useful information, and to help me by allowing me to work quickly. They staple them on as they turn in their homework. It also allows us to direct our attention quickly to the area in question if we discuss either their work or my evaluation of that work. My goal is to create a four-point rubric that communicates the standards for successful work but simultaneously offers them guidance to help them achieve that level of performance. If you have any ideas about how I can improve this form, let me know.
End of Course Portfolio Checklist
I give this to kids right away. It is designed to keep us all anchored in the standards and remind us of all that we need to accomplish. Though it looks very regimented, I work hard not to use it that way. It's used to guide and support, not constrain. In fact, it's because I can get too spontaneous and fluid that I need such maps.
Project Evaluation Rubric
Presentation Evaluation Rubric
Journal Evaluation Rubric
I revised this for the coming year (2000). I plan to give it to them the first day so they can keep the criteria before them at all times and thus know how they will be evaluated. These are also meant to save paper (they are a quarter of a page) and provide a reasonable sized space for me to comment on their journals.
These scoring rubrics help to provide specific information while speeding up the process of evaluation.
