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

Because of Exemplars, I learned to think like a mathematician and if you do, you understand the problem a lot better. When I think like a mathematician, I explain the problem, look for patterns and get a strategy.
