Re: grades

Mostly used in each project rubric in the self evaluation column. If
I needed to focus on it in the teachers column I could write comments
or discuss as the rubric was being used for project or daily critique.

No daily grades needed for my kids - just project grade. Rubric for
each project very useful to keep track of progress and as a source of
3 columns for each point on the rubric 1) self 2) peer) 3) teacher.

By the time the student and a peer have worked through the rubric my
turn was very easy. Their peers are often even more tough than I
would be and they are less likely to resist the peer evaluation. It
does take some training for peer evaluation but now that that is also
addressed in all their other classes it is much easier.
