Rubric introduction

A rubric is a method for monitoring student’s learning based on chosen criteria or guidelines. Rubrics are often provided to students before they commence an assessment task so they are able to think about the criteria on which part of their assessment will occur.

The sample rubric for this unit of work is generic and is based on ‘A model of inquiry learning’ in which students will be collecting and using data. The criteria is based on the Australian Curriculum and overlaps Science, English, Mathematics and Geography.  Teachers are encouraged to modify this rubric to meet their specific assessment needs.
