Looking for an easier way to conference with your students about their writing? This rubric is divided into major categories that are easy for students to understand. Under each, there are the most common errors that students make. Just circle problematic areas for students and attach it to their work to document the need for improvement. Also, this rubric will enable you to get a grade in the gradebook! Use the 4pt. scale and tally up each category. Use the key below to determine if the student's work is Advanced, Proficient, Basic, or Below Basic. Sorry, I didn't include a preview because it's only one page.
