QuickRubric is a free tool for creating rubrics. It is a resource designed by Photos for Class and Storyboard That. Creating a login is quick and easy, and allows you to save your rubrics for future editing and use.
Quick Rubric gives you the power to create a rubric that is tailored to your subject and point/scoring system. You have the ability to use the quantity of descriptors you need for the assignment and it will use the exact language you specify. The best part is that you can copy rubrics within your login and then modify for your next project. Thus it helps you to not have to start from scratch when creating a new assignment rubric.
Quick Rubric even gives helpful hints on how to design a better rubric by using bullets, italics, and bold markings. This is located in the Advanced Formatting at the bottom of the website. Check out their information for Tips for Writing a Strong Rubric.
Applications in Education
Even though the language of the rubric may not naturally flow into the rubric, it will make it easier to create, save, edit, and print your rubrics once they are complete. For all teachers, it is nice to have a tool that will format the rubric quickly and allow them to fine tune the document.
