This rubric breaks down the ACT ASPIRE rubric for 4th and 7th grade expository writing into a more teacher friendly understanding. It was made to mimic BOTH grade levels in one rubric. This rubric is NOT a "student friendly rubric." Some teachers use this rubric to SCORE their students' writing. Other teachers use this rubric to better understand the ACT ASPIRE rubric. Once you use this rubric for scoring, you quickly see what you're missing in your writing instruction as it relates to ACT ASPIRE's expectations. This is a great tool to use for standard 4.5 and 7.5: With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revision, and editing. This tool allows you to give your students the specific feedback they need to make necessary revisions to their writing.
