Rubrics

Rubrics are tools that are used for scoring assignments and projects.  A rubric tells the students EXACTLY what is expected of them in their work.  Using rubrics allows students to know the expectations of the teacher and allows students to know exactly what must be done.  Below are the rubrics that I will be using for digital and other projects throughout the year.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need clarification.
