Do you spend countless hours grading Document-Based Essay questions? I know I do. Once in a while, I need to revisit the key skills required for a DBQ without the stack of grading and endless hours that grading the essays require. So, I developed this great tool to help assess key DBQ skills without the same time commitment. This is the framework for assessing DBQs in an easier way. This does not include a DBQ question or DBQ documents. This is meant to be used with any of the DBQs you might assign and the documents provided should be modified to suit your needs.
