These colorful posters display a 1-4 scale rubric worded in student-friendly language. Each page includes a number and a general description of what that number represents in terms of a student's proficiency with any given skill.
These posters will help students understand the meaning of a 1-4 scale with standards-based grading. With these posters displayed in the classroom, they can be referenced before, during, and after a lesson. I typically set the specific objective for the lesson and ask students to engage with this goal by rating their understanding before and after the lesson. By engaging students with the goal and asking them to self-assess their understanding, they are more likely to stay engaged throughout the lesson.
