Across the nation, classrooms are using 4-point rubrics to grade student work in alignment with new state standards. At ThinkCERCA, we strive to help teachers save time and deliver their best instruction. That’s why we’ve updated our product to include a 4-point grading rubric in addition to our traditional 5-point system.
To use the new 4-point rubric, simply follow these instructions from our Resources Center.
We’re seeing the 4-point rubric adapted in many districts, where it simplifies the grading process. Pennsylvania teachers are familiar with the 4, 3, 2, 1 rubric; the new Georgia statewide assessments grade students’ proficiency on a scale of four achievement levels. In the midwest, many schools are now using the qualifiers “advanced,” “proficient,” “basic,” and “minimal” to assess student work.
The benefit of the 4-point rubric is that it affords our unique districts and schools the evaluative measures to provide common structures for feedback. By offering both the 5-point and 4-point rubric, educators have the choice to continually access the best metrics in providing effective assessment data for student growth.
The addition of this new rubric is just the latest innovation by our team to support our amazing schools. Have an idea for a better one?
