In this section you will see a variety of teacher-created rubrics for assessing reading comprehension activities across the curriculum. I selected these examples because they assess typical reading activities in upper elementary and middle school classrooms. As you look at the rubrics, notice that each one lists the elements of an activity followed by a scoring guide which defines three or four different levels of success.


Middle school teacher Shelley Jackson created the rubric below to assess a variety of students' written responses, for example, a book report, a character analysis, book comparisons, and other literary analyses.
