Yesterday, I wrote about having students create infographics. Today, I put together a rubric so the students have something to loosely guide their work and also to give me a standard for grading their creations.
A quick Google search brought up a bunch of different rubrics, but as usual, most of what I found was a little too lengthy for my taste. I want a loose guide that will force students to think hard, not an intricate map that will lead students to the revered “A” by following explicit directions. If they are going to get that grade, they are going to have to get there, in large part, powered by their own creative thinking. I have also included the links to a couple other noteworthy infographic project resources and rubrics that I ran across this morning.
My Rubric – This rubric has 4 different points which should be a decent guide to get students headed in the right direction.
Infographic Resources – This site has a bunch of links that will be helpful in preparing for an inforgraphic project including rubrics, examples and tips and tricks for creating great infographics.
Kathy Schrock’s Infographic Rubric – Kathy Schrock comes through with another great resource. This rubric is more suited for upper level students due to the technical language.
Cache Public Schools Infographic Rubric – A very detailed rubric. This is the road map, if that is what you like to use for a rubric
