AB Combs School used this rubric to help students think about quality work.
It's called the Hamburger Rubric and goes like this: Imagine walking into a restaurant and ordering a hamburger. After waiting an abnormally amount of time, the waiter brings you a hot dog in a soggy bun. Obviously not what you wanted! This is level 1 in quality. Here is a link:
Level 2 is you get the hamburger on time but it is barely warm and does not have the ketchup and mustard you requested.
Level 3 is you get the hamburger as you requested, hot off the grill.
Level 4 is getting the hamburger as you expected on time, with a side of fries and a shake for free - clearly more than what you expected.
Level 3 is obviously what is expected - but students are encouraged to find ways to go above and beyond to Level 4 when possible. From Jeff Janassen, Janessen Sports Leadership Center www.championshipcoachesnetwork.com
