                                                                 Happy Friday!

Have not sent the FYI in a little while. I know how dearly it is missed! In any event I have been sending screen capture videos to the course I teach at Fitchburg State. One of the things I sent this week was a video of how to use a real simple online rubric maker fittingly called "Rubric Maker". They didn't dig deep for that name.

Since we want to make sure we are always uploading a rubric along with all our assessments in Stage 2 of Rubicon Atlas this is timely.

This may be something you already have seen or use. If so stop reading and there is no need to watch the video of me using it. If not then I have created a short video here of how to use it.

I have always used RubiStar Rubric or a Google Drive template in the past. However, I have found this Rubric Maker to be incredibly simple to use with excellent drop downs with canned verbiage for virtually anything you want your students to do.

What I like best about it is it creates a student checklist for you to give to your students without any extra work on your part.

You can check out the short video of me demonstrating it here. You can make the video larger by clicking the expansion window below the video:

Here is the actual link to the Rubric-Maker site:

At the bottom of the page you can also find a helpful and simple Graphic organizer maker:

As always if you ever decided to use it please let me know.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I just made a project's rubric using in about 5 minutes. I am very pleased with both the efficiency and the canned content. My only knock/caveat is that I don't think you can rearrange the categories you select for the rubric after you create them...plan ahead if you care about the order of the rubric categories!
