We propose a rubric to measure the reach of programming learning for elementary school students. Although many indicators to evaluate programming learning have been proposed, they rely on specific tools and methods. In addition, long-term evaluations of learners are difficult. This rubric, which is comprised of indices to solve the problem, aims to evaluate the learning achievement of logical skills such as logical thinking and problem solving using a unified learning goal. Then we investigate whether this rubric can be adapted to workshop of programming learning. This rubric successfully evaluated several workshops of programming learning as it provided a unified evaluation that covers common learning objectives in existing indicators. Hence, this rubric can solve several problems.
