Step 1: Read Your Project Criteria

Carefully read through each one of the project criteria.

Step 2: Highlight the Key Requirements of Each One of the Project Criteria.

After you are done reading the criteria go back and pick out the key requirements for each one of the criteria. Highlighting the key requirements will help you stay focused and specific when you have to break down each criterion into the 1- 4 learning levels.

Step 3: Read the Learning Levels Cheat Sheet.

  • Read the learning level cheat sheet so you can review the description of what each level is. This will make it easier for you to come up with a clear picture of what each level would look like regarding the criterion you are breaking down into the levels.

(Example:)

If the criterion is...

"I can produce an anchor chart that displays good craftsmanship throughout the entirety of the project."

I can come up with an idea of what a learning level # 4 would look like for our anchor chart project. Based on the learning levels cheat sheet it would look something like this...

Level 4 : This looks like an anchor chart that has been thoughtfully put together with great attention to detail. It has no craftsmanship mistakes.

Step 4: Set Up Your Rubric.

    • You put your name and class period at the top.
    • Put your rubric title underneath your name and class period.
    • Then write the criterion # followed by the full criterion written down.

    (Example:)

    C1: The anchor chart displays an accurate general title, a title for each section, and each section has a clear and concise summary of each step in the art making process. The anchor chart is designed in a sequential order that visually makes sense to the viewer.)

    • Next, you will begin your rubric underneath the criterion.

    Step 5: Create Your Rubric!

    You will begin your rubric by starting with learning level 4 underneath the criterion followed by a description of what that learning level would look like regarding that specific criterion in the art project we are working on. Then you will work your way down through levels 3, 2, and 1 describing what each level would look like in the art project regarding the criterion you writing about. Each one of the level descriptions should begin looking something like this: L4: This looks like a _____( your art project name goes here ) that has ...

    (Example:)

    C3: I can produce an anchor chart that displays good craftsmanship throughout the entirety of the project.

    L4: This looks like an anchor chart that has been thoughtfully put together with great attention to detail. It has no craftsmanship mistakes.

    L3: This looks like an anchor chart that has no rips or smudges throughout the whole project and shows good attention to detail. It has no discernible (noticeable) craftsmanship mistakes.

    L2: This looks like an anchor chart that has a few areas with rips, smudges and poor attention to detail but, there are also areas of the anchor chart that show evidence of good attention to detail and areas that have no rips or smudges.

    L1: This looks like an anchor chart that has rips, smudges, and poor attention to detail throughout the whole project . *This can also be an incomplete anchor chart.
