Assessment As Learning - Work Habit Rubic

I wanted to explore ways of introducing assessment as learning into my VCE classes. This site contains several rubics which could easily be incorporated into such classes, but the one on work habits I found particularly useful, as good work habits are more or less essential for academic success. This rubic could be used regularly in class by the students so that they can assess what they are doing well and what needs to be improved, without the process being too time-consuming or burdensome.
