Get students actively engaged in writing and scoring short answer responses for the STAAR test. Students use the rubric to give an honest evaluation of their 10-line answer. Peers also give a response using the same criteria. Finally, you as the teacher can quickly review the grading and the response. You will discover that students are tough on themselves and are fairly accurate in their grading! This saves you TIME and ENERGY because you will not have to give a written response to each short answer.
