This final draft rubric is used for as a tool for summative assessment in monthly newsmagazine production class.
This document is available to students on our server so students know well in advance what will be expected of each page. The rubric holistically addresses main components of page production: quality of writing, adherence to style and grammar, quality of journalistic value, quality of design, and quality of overall product.
After the final draft of a page is complete and the student feels that the product is complete to the best of his/her ability, the student is required to turn in this document- assessed by the student- with a copy of the page.
Students receive grades based on their ability to score well in each category. The final attached to this document is what their grade will be based on, not editing done to a senior editor prior to production.
It is to the best interest of the student to heed- and carefully ensure- product excellence as detailed on the rubric.
