Here is a copy of the rubric that I am thinking of starting the year with:
|Exceeds||Meets||Close to meet||Does not meet|
|Completion||Completes all required HW, plus does 3 sessions on IXL.com and writes a 3 paragraph story.||Completes all required HW to the best of your ability.||Does not complete 1 page.||Does not complete more than 1 page.|
|Heading||Includes name, number and date page was finished.||Includes name, number.||Includes only name.||Missing|
|Neatness||Writing is done to the best of your ability, is neat and paper is not wrinkled.||Writing is mostly neat.||Writing is a bit messy. Some words are hard to read.||Writing is very messy. The papers are torn or all wrinkled.|
I was going to print a copy of the rubric to the front page of the packet each week and so I can circle off how the student is doing. I think this is a nice balance between grading everything and just having it be credit/no credit.
On top of that, the students should be able to circle in pencil what they think their grade should be, and I can go over with with a highlighter. This gives students a chance to reflect on their grade and take more ownership over the process!
