A great way to grade modified projects, presentations, essays, or any multiple step activity is to use a rubric. I am a big fan of the modified rubric. You are able to incorporate IEP goals (including Independent Functioning goals) into the classroom lesson and unit plans.

|After I've created a rubric, I print out a bunch of copies. This allows me to use the same rubric multiple times throughout a quarter, semester, or school year.|
