Co-Constructing Rubrics


Co-construction of math rubrics refers to the process of students and teachers working together in the creation of a rubric in its early stages. When students are involved in the development process, the result often reflects higher levels of critical thinking, student engagement and ownership of student learning.

The most successful involvement of students in the construction of math rubrics can be achieved when:

  • there is clarity in learning goals and outcomes;
  • quality samples are provided to students; and
  • student voice is perceived as valued.
