Rubrics are teachers’ Swissknives. They can be used for a variety of purposes to achieve different educational goals. For instance, you can use them to make your grading easier and quicker, assess students performances, evaluate teaching objectives, guide your lesson planning, and many more. There are actually several good web tools that make it easy for teachers to create and customize their own rubrics, some of our favourite tools in this regard are included in this post.We would also add ForAllRubrics, a good tool for creating rubrics we have recently discovered, This tool is free for teachers and is also integrated with Edmodo.
