iRubric to the Rescue

RubricAs a middle school teacher, rubrics are a daily part of my life. I write them, I share them, and I guide students to them. What I don’t do is print them and pass them out.

I found that when I gave paper rubrics that they tended to stay firmly on the desk- even when the students walked away. I’ve discovered a better way to send the rubrics with the students. It’s called iRubric.  iRubric is a rubric building site that allows you  to build your own rubric, start with someone else’s and customize it to your needs, and/or share your rubric with others.  The site allows you to link to your rubric or embed it in your website. You can assess work individually or collaboratively – allowing your students to assess each’s others progress or finished projects.

Best of all- it’s free!

No need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to rubrics. The site is searchable by content area, grade level, and type of project. I tried a sample search for an oral presentation rubric and got 2,255 rubrics to choose from.  I’m thinking one of them will be close to what I’m looking for!

    Also, majorly appreciating the snow 🙂 Not snowing in CO yet and just feels wrong!
