What is a rubric?

A rubric is a tool that outlines the criteria for evaluating a specific task or assignment. Additionally, it breaks down the different aspects of the assignment and provides a clear set of guidelines for what is expected and how it will be graded.
Elementary teachers can use rubrics for a variety of tasks and assignments. For example, writing, research projects, group work, and more. They are particularly useful in the elementary classroom because they provide a clear set of expectations for students and help teachers to be consistent in their grading.
