Have you checked out the RTI page. Response to Intervention. They have a lot of resources. Also, I send my students to Rubistar4teachers.com for great resources in building rubrics. sanvan3 a/k/a Old Teaher.
What state do you line in? I live in WA state and our state learning standards website has a link to assessment questions/rubrics for every standard and unit. Perhaps your state does also? I find that many teachers who live here don't even realize that helpful little handbook is there. My mentor teacher showed it to me last quarter and I used it for all my English assessments...it was perfect because it was right on with the standards and gave me a lot of choice as to where I wanted to go with my assessments. Anyway it couldn't hurt to look. I hope this helps. What is the unit about?
