Don't punish yourself. It sounds like you are trying to do more of something you are already doing. You give an A, B, C, etc. Is that any different than giving a 5, 4, 3,etc.?

Again, you already have a checklist of items that must be accomplished to earn one of those scores. We call that a rubric for a performance assessment.

You don't have to write a comment or an explanation...especially if you are already providing a list of necessary actions of parts of an activity or project.

So many times we are so isolated and busy, that we don't know when we are doing everything just right.

Sounds like you are using a rubric to me! Next time someone asks if you are using rubric based performance assessment, shout in the affirmative.

Hang in there,
