Rubrics for Assessing Technology Based Student Work

I came across a article on full of helpful links for creating rubrics to assess digital student work (video, blogs, wikis, Voicethread). From the article:
A common question that we get with regard to technology projects is "how do I grade it?" The 21st-century communication and collaboration skills which are used with most technology based projects are, in many ways, real-world problem-solving skills. The standard, multiple-choice type tests simply are not going to be able to assess students' learning. Instead of thinking of the assessment itself as the measurement, we are going to need to examine our students' performances of understanding. In other words, the assessment is the tool through which we can gauge how much our students have learned.
 I'm including a few links from the original page that I thought were interesting.
If you have any rubrics or assessment strategist for student digital work please share your thoughts in the comments.
