This is the final page/spread rubric that I created, perfected, and used during my 25+ years advising high school newspapers, websites, and broadcast programs. This is, essentially, the final check of each page before submitting for printing. The front side of the form is the copyeditor checklist. Body copy would have already been extensively edited, but this also insured a check of it again, as well as a check of headlines, captions, etc. The rubric on the back is for the design/layout only and would be my final grade.
