Perkins, D. (2019, November 21). How Single-Point Rubrics Can Improve The Quality Of Student Work. Retrieved April 13, 2020.

Developing and using rubrics with students has long been a challenge for educators. Sometimes it’s an afterthought for teachers once they’ve planned their lesson or unit. It’s most definitely an afterthought for most students. We dutifully hand them out at the beginning of the lesson or unit and watch as they stuff them into their backpacks or a random folder. Or worse, we pick them off the floor at the end of class and wonder why students don’t care enough.
