Product Description
This is the Descriptive Writing Rubric I use to assess my student’s writing.


This rubric has five levels:
Beginning (0)
Beginning (1)
Basic (2)
Proficient (3)
Exceeds Expectations (4)


The areas of the rubric include Sound-letter correspondence, Spacing, Handwriting, Content and Fluency, Sentence Structure, and Ending Marks.


Below is an example of the range of the scoring on the rubric for each area, with 0 being the lowest and 4 being the highest:

Sound-letter correspondence
4 Student uses transitional spelling; most sounds are included for most words; most sight words spelled correctly
0 Student uses random letters to write words

Spacing
4 All spaces are placed correctly and evenly
0 Linear letters, with left to right directionality; Nonexistent spacing

Handwriting
4 Handwriting is nearly perfect, with no obvious areas for improvement
0 Letters touching, illegible writing, or too much erasing
