Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Rubistar allows teachers to create online rubrics for a variety of content areas by providing a huge choice of templates that fit the needs of various projects and content areas. Additionally, Rubistar provides a database of ready-made rubrics.
The program does not show how to make or use a quality rubric, so teachers may need prior familiarity and understanding of rubrics in order to make use of Rubistar.
Role of Technology
Rubistar is an online rubric generator and database with a data analysis tool. For teachers who wish to use technology for project-based learning tasks, this program will provide lots of assessment ideas that can even help with backwards lesson planning.
