In AP Literature and Composition, the essay is king. Over the course of the year, we complete the open question a number of times. This scoring guide based on the College Board's rubric is designed to be printed as a cover sheet to be attached to each essay and to make scoring go more quickly. It provides a list of criteria, breaking the College Board's rubric into smaller more manageable chunks and check boxes for scores 1-9 in each category. In addition, there is room to comment on each category as well as the essay overall.
