Sometimes as teachers/parents we need specific skills to look for as they fall onto a continuum. This rubric helps you to do just that. This is yet another method I have for collecting data and another piece I use to guide classroom observations. Rubrics help to target specified behaviors and can be shared with students to indicate where they are in terms of their skills and where they should be in terms of skills. This rubric is a favorite of mine because it is a teaching tool and a data collection method.
