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

If you are a student at our school, you will have heard the term, Exemplars. Exemplars are extended tasks in which 6th graders work in cooperative groups to plan strategies and find solutions. Initially, students are presented with a particular mathematical situation and asked to brainstorm individual strategies for 'attacking' such a problem.
