This book focuses on constructing rubrics that assess students' literacy skills. Nine chapters include: (1) "Using Rubrics to Assess Literacy" (e.g., rubrics to assess authentic literacy and converting rubric scores); (2) "Using Rubrics to Assess Reading Comprehension" (e.g., examining the components of reading comprehension and how to use instructions rubrics); (3) "Literature and the Assessment Rubric" (e.g;, how to use plot, character, setting, and theme rubrics); (4) "Assessing Student Writing with Rubrics" (e.g., how to use the five-step writing process rubric and how rubrics enhance instruction); (5) "Using Rubrics to Assess Listening Skills" (e.g., the art and science of listening and how to use the instructions rubrics); (6) "Assessment Rubrics and Oral Language" (e.g., oral presentations and how to use debate rubrics); (7) "Rubrics and the Research Process" (e.g., research rubrics and how to use the collaboration rubrics); (8) "Rubrics and Classroom Technology" (e.g., preparing for tomorrow and how to use the Internet search rubrics); and (9) "Constructing Rubrics" (e.g., teacher created rubrics and student created rubrics). An appendix offers Internet sites, online state content standards, rubric related Web sites, and general Web sits for teachers. (Contains 84 references.) (SM)
