This is a rubric to assess a research paper. It includes 10 points for Works Cited, 10 Points for Thesis and 10 points for an Outline - all of which I assign before the final paper. The second page is a 40 point rubric for the final draft of the paper. All together it is worth 70 points.
The categories are clearly outlined which makes for fast grading. It is very thorough and includes the following categories across the four components of the project.
