I have a rubric for a project. There are nine elements on
the rubric and kids could earn a 4, 3, 2, 1, for each
For the final grade, do I give the points earned and divide
by 36 i.e. 35/36=97%.
Or do I add all the 4s, 3s,....and take the average of
that? i.e. the student would receive a final grade of 4, 3,
This happens to be for a social studies project, but in
general, which method of scoring do you use when using a
rubric in any subject area?
