At Dottke, we utilize a single point rubric for much of our PBL work. We use this format of rubric because we really only want to highlight what success is, rather than show students what success isn’t. When Dottke staff create a rubric with a student, the areas highlighted are the standards or learning targets or I can statements that the student is going to show mastery of by completing their project. It is of paramount importance that the student knows why they are doing the PBL work they are engaging with. They are doing the work to show mastery of content through their own creativity using a format that they chose because it expresses who they are as an individual.
