Rubrics are key to supporting students as they learn. Their work becomes more efficient and consistent when they know what is expected of them. Therefore, it is important to carefully match the rubric to the assignment and to review it with students before the work begins, to refer to it at intervals throughout the assignment to make sure they stay on track, and to go over it again before handing in the final copy. The right rubric makes your job easier too by focusing your attention on the key concepts and standards being addressed.
