The Itemized Essay Grading Form covers all aspects of essay writing. Using a 100-point grading system, it enables a teacher to point out specific weak areas of an essay and to explain (and justify), in concrete terms, its grade. Used for three essays on one Form, it can also help a teacher trace a student’s improvement pattern. For students, the Form can function as a reminder of the basics in essay writing. The Form thus can facilitate both teaching and learning.
