Rubric


Cindy, I made some changes and added point values with the content weighted more. I've left it as an excel file so it will be easier to incorporate into our final Word doc.






I put in a lot different categories for these two rubrics so that we can decide which ones we might like to keep and which ones we might like to discard. Please look it over and let me know. I'll modify it to fit the project--or anyone else can, of course! I decided to create two so that we can figure out what to use in our study.
