Three Good Ways to Create Rubrics - Tutorials Included

In my previous post I highlighted the University of Wisconsin Stout's collection of rubrics for multimedia projects. At the end of that post I mentioned that while the rubrics might not match exactly what you need, they can be a great starting point for developing your own rubrics. If you're looking for a good way to create rubrics of your own, try one of the three methods that I demonstrate in the videos that are embedded below.

How to Create a Rubric in Google Sheets
For years I have been a big fan of the Google Sheets add-on Online Rubric. It's still my go-to for making a rubric that I can enter scores into while watching students present or while grading written work. You can use it with or without Google Classroom.



How to Create a Rubric in Google Classroom
Last fall Google added a rubric feature to Google Classroom. Initially, rubrics in Google Classroom was a beta feature that was only available to some users. The rubric feature has now been rolled out to all G Suite for Education domains. Watch my video that is embedded below to learn how to create and use rubrics in Google Classroom. As a point of clarification before you watch the video, rubrics in Google Classroom can now be re-used from assignment to assignment.



How to Quickly Create Printable Rubrics
If you prefer to score presentations on paper, which can be convenient for jotting notes while watching a presentation, try using Quick Rubric to quickly create and print rubrics.

3 Good Tools for Creating Rubrics

A good rubric can help students understand what is expected of them and it can help teachers score students' assignments consistently. Over the years I've tried a variety of tools for crafting rubrics. The first ones I created were done by hand on a photocopied grid (late 90's at the University of Maine, Farmington) and in Word Perfect documents. These are the tools that I now recommend for generating rubrics.

The old, reliable. 
How long has Rubistar been around? Long enough that I was using it before I started this blog in 2007. Rubistar is a rubric creation tool offered by 4teachers.org. On Rubistar you can select from a variety of pre-made rubrics and modify them to your needs or you can use the pre-made rubrics as they are.

New, quick & easy.
