i also recently started using a rubric to grade by. i never thought i was
very good at or much interested in objectives (want to give them the latitude
to create...) but i have started setting up simple rubrics that i ask to the
finished project. it is all written down and the kids can see how they got
their grade and where they lost points. i teach middle school so i don't get
as in depth as high school, but it seems to be working and the grading is
easy and fair.
