Single-Point Rubrics

I just put up a new classroom resource at my Teachers Pay Teachers Store: Single Point Rubric Templates. I really think this is the way to go for evaluating student writing, projects, and presentations. I discovered single-point rubrics earlier this year from Jen Gonzales’ article, Your Rubric is a Hot Mess. Here’s How to Fix it. I used to teach at an IEP that adopted traditional rubrics in an attempt to deskill teachers and introduce quality control measures. At first, they seemed awesome because you could grade so fast and back-up your comments with something “objective”.
