Open-ended questions are among the most difficult to answer, and can be just as difficult to score. This rubric helps simplify the scoring process with clear definitions of each score. A complexity scale is also included to determine how complex students' responses are, ranging from using memorizing and stating facts to making a judgment with text support.
Build meta-cognition by providing this rubric to students to analyze their own work. Students can work in small group to discuss others' open-ended responses and become more comfortable using this rubric to guide their work.
