Rubrics can be used to score work by assigning a point value to a student's performance in each of the categories.
A clearer example of this will be detailed throughout the rest of the lesson. Zero is the lowest score a student can receive in a category and three is the highest.
It would probably be impossible to read and understand.
Research papers need to be similarly organized clearly.
However, research papers often don't include headings.
For example, a research paper should flow clearly and smoothly from point to point.
Rubrics are especially useful when grading written work, as they provide a template for grading each student, even when their writing style and topic may vary.
This lesson will provide an example of a rubric you can use when assessing research papers.
When grading a research paper, if the author has clearly reinforced all of their claims with sources, they would earn a three in this category.
If the author makes many claims that do not have sources, they would obviously earn a lower score, all the way down to zero.
