Product Description
This rubric helps students understand what is expected of them. It also makes grading easier for the teacher. I've used and refined this rubric to teach my fourth graders and to grade their writing. The rubric criteria begin with sentences such as "Your writing..." or "You wrote" and avoids negative language as well as jargon. Every aspect of writing is explained clearly so students know exactly what they need to do in order to improve. The rubric can be scored in three ways: 1) Give a score of 1, 2, 3, or 4 depending on which score the student achieved most frequently. 2) Use a raw score, maximum of 20 points; each box is worth the score (4x5=20). 3) Give a % grade based on the % of the rubric the student has attained. Each box is worth 5 points (5x20=100%).
