have created some tools to make your life easier. 4teachers.org makes a suite of programs that vary in levels of utility depending on the grade level you teach. The focus of the video I’ve included here is on Rubistar.
Rubistar is a rubric making utility. You can select from a variety of preformed rubrics and modify them to your needs or you can use the rubrics as written.
