The purpose of this study was to introduce a rubric named "Rubric for the Assessment of Modeling Skills" for assessing cognitive modeling skills and explaining the rubric's development process. The dimensions of the rubric are understanding the problem, simplifying, mathematizing, working mathematically, interpreting and validating. Twenty-three 6th grade and twenty 11th grade students took part in the study. During the ten weeks of the data collection process, we analyzed the participants' solutions on the modeling tasks and constructed the levels of the dimensions. The rubric offers a detailed assessment and scoring for different solutions that may arise in any modeling task implementation.
