Student Rubrics

Exemplars student rubrics feature kid-friendly language and symbols. These may be used during self- and peer-assessments. Students may also use our assessment rubrics (and anchor papers) to compare their work to during self- and peer-assessments.

Math Student Rubrics

Jigsaw Rubric

This rubric uses pieces of a jigsaw puzzle as symbols. It is appropriate to use with younger students who may not be able to follow the words in another rubric.

Thermometer Rubric

This rubric is appropriate to use with older children. They can self-assess by drawing a line on the thermometer. The teacher can also assess by making a mark on the same rubric.

Science Student Rubrics

Seed Rubric

This rubric is appropriate for use with younger children. It shows how a seed develops, from being planted to becoming a flowering plant. Each growth level represents a different level of performance.

I Get It! Rubric

A primary rubric that uses a combination of words and symbols to describe different levels of performance.

What I Need to Do

While not exactly a rubric, this guide assists students in demonstrating what they have done to meet each criterion in the rubric. The student is asked in each criterion to describe what they need to do and the evidence of what they did.
