Sample Rubrics

A school requested sample rubrics for problem solving. The ideas is that the more samples one sees, the better able one is the develop a rubric that better support the students being served.  Here is a list for review and adaptation.

  1. Sample Rubric from Introduction to Reasoning and Proof: Grades 3 – 5 by Karren Schultz-Ferrell, Brenda Hammond, and Josepha Robles
  2. Sample Rubric B – this this is from NCTM, no visuals, but gives terminology that can be very useful in the creation of math rubrics.
  3. Sample K and 2nd Rubric A – from Pioneer Academy, Queens, NY. Incorporates the Mathematical Practices. The 2nd grade rubrics can be used and the standards adapted for grades 3 to 5.
  4. Samples Rubrics C – a collection from various states.
  5. Happy Face Rubric – I put this together years ago…needs updating, but very simple and student-friendly.
  6. Flowers Rubric -I put this together years ago.  These are visual and need updating. Set to print 4-to a page, so that they can be used to post on student work.
  7. Puzzle Rubric – adapted for Exemplars Puzzle Rubric for Pioneer Academy, Queens, NY. Visual and easy to use and follow. Needs updating for the Mathematical Practices.
  8. Classic Exemplars Rubric – from a commercial company (Exemplars)
  9. Standard Exemplars Rubric – from a commercial company (Exemplars)
  10. Primary Jigsaw Exemplars Rubric – from a commercial company (Exemplars)
  11. Standard JigSaw Exemplars Rubric – from a commercial company (Exemplars)
  12. Exemplars Rubric for Student Self-Evaluation – from a commercial company (Exemplars)
  13. NYS State 2-point and 3-point Rubrics – Vital that teachers adapt these rubrics with input from students and use consistently in class. Student should know how to evaluate the work of others.
  14. Sample Rubrics – online resource
  15. Sample Rubric – from school online

Rubrics for Teacher Use:

  1. Mathematica Practices Rubric for Lessons – to support teachers when evaluating the implementation of problem solving activities.
  2. Academic Rigor Rubric for Developing Lesson and Tasks – to support teachers in the selection of tasks.
  3. Differentiation Rubric – this is not for problem solving but for teachers to think about differentiating their lessons.
  4. Manipulative Usage Project – teachers were asked to display and model how they had incorporated manipulatives into the classroom.
