RubiStar

Principal function(s): Marking and feedback

A simple website for the creation and sharing of assessment criteria (rubrics). There are ready-made rubrics for different topics (e.g. Reading, Writing, Math, Art, etc.) but users can also create their own rubrics from scratch. Rubrics are printable and can be saved in one's account. All users need to do is write the content in the table provided. Evaluation: An easy way to create a rubric without having to create a table in a word file. A great time-saver if users can find already existing rubrics that suit your particular needs. Some ideas on possible evaluation of students are already given, which makes the grading process easier for teachers. Minimal IT skills are required for its use. Why not get your students to create their own rubric according to how their own work will be assessed?

Cost: Free with registration
