Rubrics

Rubistar

RubiStar is a tool to help the teacher who wants to use rubrics, but does not have time to develop them from scratch. RubiStar provides generic rubrics that can simply be printed and used for many typical projects and research assignments. These generic rubrics can also be customized to fit your specific needs, and saved online. Once you have used the rubric for your classroom project, you will be able to analyze the performance of your whole class, and insure that the subject was clearly understood.
