Spelling and Mechanics: There are some spelling and/or punctuation mistakes, but they do not interfere with understanding.
Not Pass (2) Content: The student may address one or two of the questions in the prompt but not thoroughly.
When you make a rubric, you can use default text for a variety of existing performances, or create your content from scratch.
Start by giving the new rubric a title and grade level.
Fail (1) Content: The student may address one of the questions in the prompt but answers vaguely or briefly.
Organization: The order of ideas is confusing and details and examples are not used or are not supportive.
For example, a musical performance might be rated for intonation, rhythmic accuracy, and tone quality and an oral presentation might be rated for content, organization, delivery and language. "Neatness" would not be a good criterion because the term "neat" is not explicit enough. You may want to look at some actual examples of student work to see if you have omitted any important criteria.
Describe the different levels of performance that match each criterion.
Try to articulate what makes the good assignments good and the poor assignments poor.
You can create customized rubrics for primary, elementary, middle, and high school.
