Ever wonder at the "simple" one to two idea rubrics setting students up for failure? This is a modified version of the comprehensive Universal Writing Rubric - made for a quick self evaluation or peer evaluation. It incorporates the best of the basic skills required to show an understanding of structure and organization. There are no check off boxes for higher end understanding (like using figurative language, twisting the usage in a sentence for effect). No... this rubric is straight to the point. It actually serves 3 purposes: STRUCTURE, ORGANIZATION, AND RESPONSIBILITY (taking into consideration if the student has even put his or her name, date, period number, and assignment title in the upper corner!). If you want something more, look into the Universal Rubric. If you are looking for easy - but not 'simple,' then this is the rubric you need!
