Assessment Rubrics for Teachers
Our performance material includes standards-based rubrics that define what work meets today's standards, allowing teachers and students to distinguish between different levels of performance.
Math Assessment Rubrics
Standards-Based Math Rubric
This rubric was updated in 2014 to reflect more current standards. It supports NCTM Process Standards and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice.
Classic 5-Criteria Math Rubric
This rubric was developed to reflect the revised NCTM standards.
Classic 3-Criteria Math Rubric
This rubric was used from 1993 to 2001 to assess student performance. It is based on the original NCTM standards. Many schools and districts using Exemplars earlier material continue to use this rubric to assess student performance.
Pre K–K Rubric
This rubric was developed to assess younger students' performance. It is based on recommendations from NCTM and the preschool standards developed at the Conference on Standards for Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Mathematics Education.
Science Assessment Rubrics
Standards-Based Science Rubric
This rubric is based on science standards from the National Research Council and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
K–2 Science Continuum
This continuum was developed by an Exemplars workshop leader and task writer, Tracy Lavallee. It provides a framework for assessing the scientific thinking of young students.
