Grading papers is what keeps us all awake into the wee hours of the night. Now with the news of more writing in common core, all teachers will be pressured for more of a push in writing. Common core has developed a rubric for what they will be expecting, and this Excel file will make all those teachers' lives easier who avoid giving writing assignments simply because of the time commitment with grading. This digital form aligns with the common core writing rubric for analytic and narrative writing. Simply choose the comment from the drop down menu that fits the piece of writing, and wa-la! The form does all the calculating and grading for you! Principals & Administrators - this would be great for a school-wide streamlined writing rubric as well.
