This is a great rubric to use to assess student LETTER writing samples. The student is scored on an excellent job, inconsistent usage, or needs improvement scale. The skills assessed are content (staying on topic, having a greeting, body, closing), mechanics (capitalization, punctuation, handwriting), mechanics (comma usage), spelling (sight words/spelling words, phonics skills and known spelling patterns, and grammar (noun/verb agreement, not missing words, sentences have a noun and a verb).
