Why is this beneficial for ALL learners?

Although this resource would most likely be used by the teacher themselves, the students benefit GREATLY from this tool. When rubrics are shared before they are used as an assessment tool, the expectations are known to students and they are more likely to meet the standards held by the teachers. Rubrics create a common language and expectation and clear up the guess work. Most importantly, after they have been created they make grading for teachers a MUCH EASIER JOB!!!!
