PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here are two rubrics that can be used for a wide variety of writing tasks. They have been used with ELLs in Grades 5 - 8 to assess narrative, expository, persuasive, and creative writing assignments and they can be used with native English-speaking students, too. Both rubrics have been used successfully for peer editing, formative assessment and summative assessment purposes. These rubrics can be used not just for writing assignments in ELA/English classes but to assess writing tasks in Social Studies, Science, Math, and other subject classes as well. Directions for converting the number-based rubrics to a letter grade are provided. Both rubrics are offered in color and black-and-white versions in this product. Space for writing comments by the teacher is provided as well on every rubric.

The first rubric has two versions: standards-based and number-based, for teachers who need to calculate a grade on a 100-point scale. The second rubric also comes in number-based and standards-based versions. In addition, each of those versions comes in two styles: one where teachers can use the criteria already provided to assess a student's work and one where teachers can input their own 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 style with the values already provided but in the other style, teachers can determine for themselves how many errors a student can make and still be rated Excellent. Please take a look at the Preview to see all the different versions.

Please note: These two rubrics can also be found in my Writing Rubrics & Checklists: A Collection of 7 Assessment Tools (CCSS Aligned) product, which also includes five additional rubrics and checklists to assess various types of writing tasks. It is available here:
