  9. 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.

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.
