Your total: ________________
When I do your binder check I will circle the category I think your binder falls in for each row and
write the points in the left column (I may use a + or – which would result in _ a point). If you
disagree with my evaluation, please feel free to express your concerns; there may be something
about your learning style or way of organizing that I’ve overlooked.
Keep your filled out rubric in your binder until the end of the school year. There are two reasons for
this: 1) if your binder shows improvement in future quarters I will take that into consideration, but I
can't do that well if I don't have your earlier rubrics to look at; 2) if there is a discrepancy in your
binder grade on iPass you can show me this paper so I can address the problem.
