Clear out your rubric clutter! Use one rubric for all science projects? Yes it's possible!
Use this rubric combined with the Project Quality Standards listed for FREE to assess all projects! Teachers and high school students both love it because it cuts out having a different rubric for each project! NGS Standards rely heavily on skills developed using Bloom's Taxonomy so I developed this general rubric to help students to think more deeply about their projects!
I use it in 2 ways: 1) I do a class activity for students to re-write the rubric in student friendly terms, which increases engagement through understanding of what is expected; and 2) I sit with students and discuss specific ways for their project to meet the expectations on the rubric.
Student project quality increases every time! And students learn that it's not so painful to critique their work and improve it!
