Use this rubric to quickly, easily, & thoroughly assess a written or spoken response to a question. Aligned to 11-12 ELA Common Core Standards & designed for easy Standards-Based Grading, this versatile rubric is detailed & thorough to ensure accurate, fair, & objective scoring of a response in any format, purpose, venue, or scenario and can be applied to any prompt & structure assigned. We achieve this by focusing on the skills & proficiencies the standards assess, not on specific formats teachers may teach. However, if a task does not meet the needs of your students or the assignment, it can easily be omitted. The indicators & tasks are clear, consistent, precise & instructive so that students can know exactly what issues their performance encountered as well as lighting a path to how to fix them. Though this is drawn from the 11-12 ELA Common Core Standards, can be used for 9-10 students as well.
You may want to add a rubric for a standard or task into the bottom row to account for content knowledge in the response. Or, view the reading standards in my store which you can copy and paste over!
