A good rubric can make assessing interactive notebooks easier and more effective. I have my students periodically use the rubric in self-reflection, and then I use the rubric to record formative assessment scores in the gradebook.
Here is the rubric I use with my students in science and social studies. Feel free to use it as is, or make changes to make it your own.
