Weekend Website #89: Rubrics for Web 2.0 Tools

Posted by on March 9, 2012

Drop by every Friday to discover what wonderful website my classes and parents loved this week. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of yours as they are of mine.


5th grade-High School


Rubrics for Web 2.0 tools, sites


University of Wisconsin Stout


These rubrics are published by the University of Wisconsin–Stout’s School of Education. They’re doing impressive work there. In a climate where unemployment for teachers is well above the national average, UW-Stout’s 2010-11 graduates had a 97.9 percent employment rate. This, according to their records, is the exact same rate as in 2009-10.

I’ve used a few of the rubrics and each time, been quite impressed. There are six on Web 2.0 topics–

Wiki Rubric
Criteria for assessing individual and group Wiki contributions.

Blog Rubric
Assess individual blog entries, including comments on peers’ blogs.

Twitter Rubric
Assess learning during social networking instructional assignments.

A+ Web Page Rubric
Joan Vandervelde’s rubric details 9 categories for evaluating a web page

A+ e-Portfolio Rubric
Electronic portfolio rubric created by Joan Vandervelde includes 7 categories with 4 levels of achievement

Web Project Rubric (PDF format)

…as well as more on general educational issues. They are thorough, detailed, cover everything I would consider important, and the University has been generous about sharing each time I asked for those permissions.To sign up for Weekend Websites delivered to your email, click Weekend Websites here and leave your email.
