Do you need to prepare your students for the MSTEP test coming up? Are your students aware of what they are being graded on?
I made this rubric looking at the M-STEP opinion rubric for teachers and administrators. Everything on this rubric is the exact same criteria that is on the M-STEP rubric at Michigan.gov only in “kid friendly” language. Opinion paper 1 example is the “perfect” score paper that is written. Opinion paper 2 example is the paper I wrote that should be scored at a 3 for organization and evidence with grammar being a 2. Opinion paper 3 example is the paper I wrote that should be scored at a 2 for organization and evidence with grammar being a 1. opinion paper 4 example I wrote should be a 1 for organization and evidence with many grammar mistakes.
