What is a Rubric?
Why Use Rubrics?
1. Teachers become very clear about
curriculum content & big ideas
2. Consistency in assessments
3. Provides students a clearer picture of
their progress and skills.
4. Facilitates conversations with parents.
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
Identify and
understand
the learner
outcomes and
indicators
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
NOT THIS!
Describe work in
terms of qualities,
rather than
quantities
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
Use parallel
language
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
Use clear
criteria to
describe the
outcomes
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
Chunk
cumbersome
outcomes into
smaller pieces
N5.5 Demonstrate an
understanding of fractions by
comparing fractions with like
and unlike denominators.
N5.5 Demonstrate an
understanding of fractions by
using concrete and pictorial
representations to create
sets of equivalent fractions
Criteria for Effective Rubrics
Use student
friendly
language
Examples of Student Friendly Rubrics -1
Grade 9 Math Outcome – Students will
demonstrate an understanding of linear
inequalities
4 – I can solve situational questions. I can verify
my answer. I can interpret solutions.
3 – I can consistently:
• solve a linear inequality
• Write an inequality for a given statement
• Write an inequality given a graph
9.3 continued
2 – I can consistently graph a given inequality.
1 – I need more help with becoming consistent
with this criteria.
Example of Student Friendly Rubrics - 2
Grade 5 – Math Outcome: analyze models of,
developing strategies for, and carry out
multiplication of whole numbers.
4 – Student is able to solve multiplication
situational problems.
3 – Student is able to multiply 2-digit by 2-digit
whole numbers using a personal strategy.
5.2 Math continued
2 – Student is able to multiply 2-digit by 2-digit
using a personal strategy and with the use of
tool (multiplication chart, calculator)
1 – Student need assistance in choosing a
strategy and tool to use in order to multiply
numbers.
4 Point Rubric
1- Beginning
Indicates partial
understanding.
Students at this
level have limited
success with the
outcome even
with support.
4 Point Rubric
Approaching – 2
Indicates that
the student has
a basic
understanding
or inconsistent
understanding
of the outcome.
4 Point Rubric
Proficiency – 3
Indicates a welldeveloped
understanding of
the outcome.
Students at this
level are
competent with
the skills and
knowledge within
the outcome.
4 Point Rubric
Mastery – 4
Indicates an
insightful
understanding of
the outcome.
Students at this
level can apply
and transfer
knowledge to
novel situations.
Outcome: CR2.1 Comprehend and respond to a variety of grade-level texts that address:
identity, community, social responsibility and make connections to prior learning and
experiences.
1 – Beginning
2 - Approaching
3 - Proficient
Listen and respond
using a variety of
and show
comprehension by:
 Discussing
relevant
experiences and
texts
 Making
thoughtful
connections
 Identifying
reasonable
similarities and
differences
4 - Mastery
Outcome: CR2.1 Comprehend and respond to a variety of grade-level texts that address: identity,
community, social responsibility and make connections to prior learning and experiences.
1 – Beginning
2 - Approaching
3 - Proficient
4 - Mastery
Listen and respond
level texts and show
comprehension that is:
 Limited ability to
discuss experiences
texts
 Makes few, if any
connections
 Identifies limited
similarities and
differences
Listen and respond
level texts and show
comprehension by:
 Simplistically
discussing
experiences and
texts
 Making
predictable
connections
 Identifying basic
similarities and
differences
Listen and respond
using a variety of
show comprehension
by:
 Discussing
relevant
experiences and
texts
 Making
thoughtful
connections
 Identifying
reasonable
similarities and
differences
Listen and respond
using a variety of
show comprehension
by:
 Discussing
inferential
experiences and
texts
 Making
significant
connections
 Identifying
complex
similarities and
differences
Outcome: CR2.1 Comprehend and respond to texts that address identity, community, social
responsibility, and make connections to earlier learning and experiences.
I can listen and respond to the texts my teacher reads to me.

depth the
experiences
that connect to
the story

connections
• I can see the
complex
examples of
same and
different
Creating LSKYSD Rubrics
1. Pick a subject and grade.
2. Review:
-NESD rubrics
-SK Curriculum online
-LSKY outcomes and unpacked indicators
-High School math – SRSD rubrics
1. Use the template provided.
2. Describe the proficient level first.
3. Decide what that outcome looks like at the other
levels. Use the word tool to pick the verbs to describe
them.
What Next?
• Hand in or email templates to [email protected]/* <![CDATA[ */!function(t,e,r,n,c,a,p){try{t=document.currentScript||function(){for(t=document.getElementsByTagName('script'),e=t.length;e--;)if(t[e].getAttribute('data-cfhash'))return t[e]}();if(t&&(c=t.previousSibling)){p=t.parentNode;if(a=c.getAttribute('data-cfemail')){for(e='',r='0x'+a.substr(0,2)|0,n=2;a.length-n;n+=2)e+='%'+('0'+('0x'+a.substr(n,2)^r).toString(16)).slice(-2);p.replaceChild(document.createTextNode(decodeURIComponent(e)),c)}p.removeChild(t)}}catch(u){}}()/* ]]> */
• Rubrics will be fine tuned and then posted on
the Living Sky School Division Curriculum
Connections website
• In the future exemplars will be collected and
