Included is a rubric that I use for formal debates in my high school courses - Model UN and Street Law. The rubric assesses the team's performance, as well as the individual team member's performance and contributions to the debate. The weights of different categories can be adjusted to reflect class-specific learning goals. Best for instructors comfortable with calculating weighted averages.
Being able to argue is an essential skill in various areas of life. This ready-to-use rubric allows you to assess students' argumentation skills in a structured debate!
