Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Rubrics

Exemplars rubrics are excellent tools for assessing student work and for encouraging student self- and peer-assessment.

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.

Our rubrics have four levels of performance: Novice, Apprentice, Practitioner (meets the standard) and Expert. Exemplars uses two types of rubrics:

  • Standards-Based Assessment Rubrics are used by teachers to assess student work in Math, Science and Writing. Exemplars material includes both a general rubric as well as task-specific rubrics.
  • Student Rubrics are used during peer- and self-assessments and feature kid-friendly language and symbols.

Students can also use our Assessment Rubrics (and annotated anchor papers) to compare their work to during peer- and self-assessments. Based on student performance, teaching and learning strategies can be adjusted.

Here's What People Are Saying

I was amazed to see the differentiation and the student examples. So many times we see the problems, but not actual student work. Thank you so much for allowing me to see student work and the DIFFERENT ideas so that it's not me creating "mini mes" but showing students how to arrive at the answer in many different ways!
