Use these rubrics to teach students the expectations for short and extended constructed response questions and prepare them for answering text-based questions on assessments. They are written with kid-friendly language so students can self-assess their writing. These rubrics were adapted from the NYS ELA constructed response rubrics for 4th Grade. I included two headings on the second page that can be used if you’d like to post these rubrics on a bulletin board. After each rubric is an enlarged version that you can use on an anchor chart or bulletin board.
