This zip file contains two PDF files: grading rubrics for formal writing assignments intended to be composed in MLA Format. Both rubrics have scores that total 100 points, however, their weights between formatting and content are different. One rubric's score is divided equally between formatting and content. The second rubric's score is divided with three-quarters (75/100) of the points weighted towards content while only one-quarter (25/100) is weighted towards formatting. Each rubric is set up like two checklists, making requirements easily understood and checked off by students during the different steps of the writing process.
