I am quite impressed with this rubric creating site I recently ran across called iRubric.  Individual educators and students can create a free account.  “Build, Assess, Share and Collaborate” with your rubrics! iRubric is a comprehensive rubric development, assessment, and sharing tool. It is designed to be easy to use. 

Two of my favorite features –
1. The Public Gallery where you can search through existing rubrics by Grade Level, Type and Subject.  There are a myriad of choices!
2. The collection of how-to videos for creating your own rubrics.  I am not that good at coming up with my own rubrics so this is a real boon in my opinion. 

Here is what iRubric has to say about their scoring features:  

Click. Click. Done. Scoring rubrics cannot be made any easier. Just pull up a rubric from the gradebook, click, click, and you're done. Rubric scores are automatically adjusted to the coursework grading scale and posted on the gradebook. All you have to do next is to press [save]. Students get a copy of the scored rubric securely... no more paperwork, no more calculations and no more confusion.
Sign up for your free iRubric account today andspend more time teaching and less time grading”!
