Product Description
These 2 rubrics have been used successfully for peer editing, formative assessment and summative assessment purposes and you can use them to assess narrative, expository, persuasive, and creative writing assignments. They work very well for ELLs and you can also use them with your native English-speaking students. (Please note: These 2 rubrics can also be found in the Writing Rubrics & Checklists: A Collection of 7 Assessment Tools resource, which also includes 5 additional rubrics and checklists to assess various types of writing tasks. Click: HERE for more info.)

These rubrics can be used not just for writing assignments in English/Language Arts classes but to assess writing tasks in Social Studies, Science, Math, and other subject classes as well. Both rubrics are offered in color and black-and-white versions. Space where you can write comments is provided on every rubric.

The first rubric has 2 versions. The first version is standards-based. The second version is number-based so you can easily calculate a grade on a 100-point scale and instructions are provided in the teacher notes on how to do that.

The second rubric also comes in number-based and standards-based versions. In addition, each of those versions comes in 2 styles: one where teachers can use the criteria already provided to assess a student's work and one where teachers can input their own point values in some of the categories to assess a student's work. For example, in the grammar section it says "Excellent, almost perfect; only 1 - 2 errors" for the pre-made style with the values already provided. In the other style, you can determine for yourself how many errors a student can make and still be rated "Excellent." This allows you to modify the rubrics to best meet the needs of you and your students.
