This zip file contains two versions of the same writing rubric: one PDF file and one MS Word file. The Word file allows you to customize and personalize the document. It is set up as a 100-point grade divided into five judging criteria: organization, content, evidence, formatting, and mechanics. The scores range from 1 (needs improvement) to 4 (excellent). There is a space at the bottom of the rubric for tallying the total grade and teacher comments.
