***REVISION: Updated to reflect the changes made to the PARCC rubrics in July 2015.
This document provides student-friendly checklist versions of the holistic writing rubrics for PARCC. It is aligned to the Condensed Scoring Rubric for Prose Constructed Response Items. The format uses "I can" verbiage and corresponds the descriptors to the Six Traits of Writing.
* Rubric for Research Simulation Task and Literary Analysis Task
* Rubric for Narrative Task
* Bonus: A form to encourage self-reflection on sample Evidence-Based Selected Responses (EBSR)
Although the rubrics are subject to change as researchers continue to study the PARCC implementation, this file can be used to help students gain a sense of the general writing expectations.
