Demonstrating Understanding: Rubrics and Scoring Guides

Project-based learning demands a more progressive means of assessment where students can view learning as a process and use problem-solving strategies to meet or exceed project expectations. Rubrics and scoring guides have been implemented into today’s classrooms to give students a better understanding of what is being assessed, what criteria grades are based upon, and what clear and compelling product standards are addressed. The focus of rubrics and scoring guides is to monitor and adjust progress rather than just to assess the end result.
