If you are using a report card that requires you to write detailed comments, you can still use a rubric and you can make it more detailed.
For example, instead of using consistently and inconsistently, you might want to have more than two columns to check. Perhaps your school or district provides categories that you want to use, or you might show a spectrum of descriptors such as consistently, occasionally, seldom, infrequently or independent, proficient, developing, beginning. In this way you turn your rubric into an outline for the notes you'll write for each student.
