Ah….grading rubrics. I have a love/hate relationship with grading rubrics. I love them because they help me to “level” the playing field when trying to grade something that is so subjective. But I hate them because they are hard to design.
Over the years I have worked with many different rubrics. I love looking at other people’s rubrics to see if it is something I can work with or steal from to create my own rubric. I want to include things that are important, but can keep me objective. I’ve tried some that are wordy and explains every little detail. I’ve tried different numbering scales. I’ve got different rubrics for different types of projects. I don’t know if it is best to have one general one or to be specific for each project. Is it okay to have a different one for each level of class? What do you do? What works best for you?
