How I Use It
Rubistar is a simple way to create rubrics. The samples provided and easy to work with platform make creating a rubric a breeze. I peruse the rubrics available and then use the online generator to get a skeleton rubric. I then use the drop-down menus and edit the results to reflect my preferences.
While Rubistar isn't necessarily used by students, it drives their work when completing projects. One might also have students create their own rubrics. It is important the user be knowledgeable in the basics of a good rubric prior to starting. It is certainly a huge help to have a variety of rubrics to use as a starting point or to combine various aspects of the rubrics to create a rubric for your class projects.
