  6. How to Create and Use Rubrics for Formative Assessment and Grading

    In this comprehensive guide, the author identifies two essential components of effective rubrics: (1) criteria that relate to the learning (not the "tasks") students are being asked to demonstrate and (2) clear descriptions of performance across a continuum of quality. She outlines the difference between various kinds of rubrics, explains when using each type of rubric is appropriate and highlights examples from all grade levels and assorted content areas. Intended for educators who are already familiar with rubrics as well as those who are not, this book is a complete resource for writing effective rubrics and for choosing wisely from among the many rubrics that are available on the Internet and from other sources.
