Rubric Labels

Found in: grading; language arts

I use address labels for self-assessing rubrics. I set up a simple 1-5 scale and then list the skills or ideas to be graded for the assignment. For example, a writing assignment rubric might look like this: 1 2 3 4 5 Capitals, 1 2 3 4 5 Periods, 1 2 3 4 5 Cursive.

Students circle the number they feel they earned before handing in the assignment. Then I circle the number I feel they earned when I grade their work. Most of the time we match, but if we are way off, then I know whom I need to work with the next day. The rubrics help students understand how grades are earned and how to focus on specific skills and concepts.
