What Is a Rubric?
Assessment Update, v21 n6 p4, 13 Nov-Dec 2009
In this article, the author discusses what rubric really is. A rubric is not a technical specification nor is it a checklist for ailing student performances in need of therapy. It is the finest description of what teachers think is important for their students right now, in the service of their learning. Most important, it is a statement of their mutual commitment to be guided by the highest and most carefully considered values in their professional practice. It is what they promise to teach.
