PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here are seven checklists and rubrics for a wide variety of writing tasks! All have been student-tested over many years and they have been used successfully for peer editing, formative assessment and summative assessment purposes. These rubrics and checklists can be used not just for writing assignments in ELA/English classes but to assess writing tasks in Social Studies, Science, Math, and other subject classes as well. All the rubrics and checklists can be used with ELLs as well as other students.

The checklists come in two versions--pre-made and "customizable." The "customizable" versions are NOT editable but rather have blanks for some features' descriptors that can be filled in by teachers.

Four of the 5 rubrics are available in number-based and standards-based versions and also come in pre-made and "customizable" versions, so there are four versions for each rubric. The other rubric comes in 2 versions: standards-based and number-based because it focuses on form instead of content -- it evaluates, among other things, how well a student writes a topic sentence and the kind of vocabulary used. This rubric is especially useful when assessing ELLs' writing.

Two of the rubrics are general writing rubrics that have been used for narrative, expository, creative, and opinion and persuasive writing. These two more general rubrics can be purchased by themselves if you prefer; you can find them HERE.

All the checklists and rubrics are aligned with certain ELA Writing and Language standards for Grades 5 - 8. Directions for converting the number-based rubrics to a letter grade are provided. Every checklist and rubric is offered in color and black-and-white versions in this product.
