I use this rubric in my classroom for a wide variety of evidence-based writing in all subject areas. It works well for paragraph and response writing. I employ ACES (Answer, Cite, Expand, Summarize) in my classroom and this rubric assesses each of the four areas. However, it can be quickly and easily modified for any acronym you may use in your classrooms and is fully editable.
This rubric, while specific enough in its language for each category, is designed to be simple enough to be used with all content areas. I even use the rubric for many of my students' math responses. I hope it works as well for your students as it does for mine!
