Rúbricas o matrices de valoración Uno de los principales problemas a los cuales se enfrentan los profesores de educación primaria y secundaria en México es, sin duda, la evaluación del aprendizaje de sus alumnos. Existe una normatividad vigente establecida por la Secretaría de Educación Pública desde 1994 (Acuerdo 200) que en sus considerandos especifica que "...la evaluación de los educandos comprenderá la medición en lo individual de los conocimientos, las habilidades, las destrezas y, en general, del logro de los propósitos establecidos en los planes y programas de estudio". La evaluación como forma de poder del profesor A esto se agrega que la evaluación no está incorporada a la práctica educativa como parte del proceso mismo, sino como un instrumento de poder detentado por el profesor y que se esgrime para controlar o sancionar al alumno. Evaluar no es calificar Santos Guerra aborda de manera magistral el problema sobre las prácticas de evaluación y en particular la diferencia entre evaluar y calificar.

Rubrics and Rubric Makers As we all know grading is the most necessary procedures of our career. It might just be me, but grading is the bane of my existence. Do you feel the same way? Grading large works, especially towards the end of the school year, feels like it is an endless and mindless process. I remember a few years back when I helped grade over 4,000 essays from a neighboring school district. The only thing I can relate the feeling of completing that grading session was giving birth to my daughter. When you grade large works of any kind it is very difficult for even the most competent people to remain 100% objective. Not only do rubrics lead to better equality in assessment, but it gives you standard that will help you understand exactly what you are looking for in the quality of work. Rubrics are essential to grading student assignments effectively. Rubrics make grading quicker, clearer, and more objective.
