ThemeSpark provides a quick way to generate rubrics based on standards. They currently focus on national level standards but plan to add more in time.
Standards Currently Supported:
- Common Core State Standards
- College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards
- Next Generation Science Standards
- National Coalition for Core Art Standards
- 21st Century Skills
The site walks you through a series of steps to narrow your choices from subject to standard. Some standards are broken down into elements allowing teachers to measure the entire standard or just a subset of the standard. Many of the standards have been reworded to differentiate among levels of mastery within a rubric.
The site doesn’t offer many ways to customize your rubric, but that’s the point. They have taken a minimalist approach so that you can “make a standards-based rubric in less than a minute.”
Finished rubrics can be downloaded as PDFs. Rubrics can be shared via URL, email, Facebook, Twitter, or Likedin.
