The download includes (9) assessments for originally created to assess fifth grade Social Studies standards.
Each assessment includes at least one open-ended response in addition to other assessment types (like multiple-choice questions.)
A simple, four-point rubric is embedded within each assessment.
The assessments are editable Word documents, so you may customize them accordingly.
These assessments are based on the Georgia Performance Standards (History) for 5th Grade, but they make a great starting point if you need to create your own standards-based assessment.
