How do you score a rubric?
    Thi s one would be for a Soc. Studies project

    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,
    2, 1.

    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?
