How to Prepare Your iPad for the New School Year - TeachingwithiPad.org | IPads iDeas | Scoop.it

"Now that it's the middle of summer, rubrics are probably the furthest thing from your minds. However, unfortunately it won't be long from now that we will be knee-deep in marking. ForAllRubrics https://www.forallrubrics.com/ is one of my best finds online in a long time. This is a free “service” for teachers that works on iPad and iPhone. Now, teachers will be able to create rubrics and easily use their iOS devices to assess all of their students."

This makes it very easy to grade your students projects or products. I think a rubric is the step some teachers forget.
