This rubric is useful when grading student work, especially word problems. It details all of the items students need to receive a 4, 3, 2 or 1 on their work. It has been especially helpful to me during problem of the day and has led to many animated classroom discussions. It holds students accountable for their work and makes sure they show commitment to quality. It has also been helpful to me when grading, as it can be subjective at times.
