Take the ambiguity out of grading homework with this simple rubric. This rubric is designed to help students and parents understand how homework will be graded. There are 2 designs presented. The first rubric includes the points that will be given, why the teacher gave that number of points, and a section for the students to look at to understand what they are doing well and what they need to improve on in order to receive more points. An additional rubric is given that does not include the student self-evaluation column.
I give the students the 3-column rubric and the parents 2-column rubric. Both have been designed to fit in interactive notebooks or they can be copied and hole-punched to put into a standard 3-ring notebook.
