K-12 teachers using standards know it’s not easy to create rubrics for authentic assessment. Creating a rubric for each standard--whether it’s Common Core, NGSS or C3--usually requires hours of time that you really don’t have.
With ThemeSpark Rubric Maker, you can quickly and easily create a standards-based rubric in less than a minute! (Really.) Designed by a former middle school teacher, these standards have already been unpacked for you to easily build rubrics by selecting your subject, grade and topic from dropdown boxes. You can combine topics and subjects in your rubric, and customize the descriptions. For additional depth, you also have the option to add in rubrics that teach the 4Cs (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking) of 21st Century skills into your subject rubric. Free!
Why should you use the ThemeSpark Rubric Maker vs. other tools?
1. You don’t need to fill rubrics in manually like you do for other rubric tools. The rubric is built automatically based on your selections.
2. Each point on the rubrics is separated by either higher-order thinking skills or grade level skills. Other rubrics focus on quantity of work -- NOT quality of learning.
3. The rubrics are downloadable as a PDF and easily shareable.
4. As a busy teacher, you may not have had the chance to study the standards thoroughly before being required to teach them--we’ve already highlighted the core skills in each level 3 for each standard so you don’t have to!
