These easy to use Writing and Speaking Rubrics will help you to evaluate your language students' writing and speaking by grading smarter, not harder! They're based on the American Council of Teachers of Foreign Languages' Proficiency Guidelines and range from Novice Low to Advanced Low. These rubrics are non-language specific and you can use them for whatever language or level you teach. The Introduction Page has Proficiency Expectations for each level and corresponding letter grades on the rubric to make assigning grades easy and fair, and a parent letter explaining Proficiency Based Grading. If your school/district/state has different Proficiency Targets than the ones listed, there's a Non-Level specific Writing and Speaking rubric without letter grades that will work for you and there's a link for the editable rubrics so you can make these work for you and your students!

Additionally, there are copies of each Rubric with point values for 10 point and 25 point assignments/assessments to suit your grading needs.

Also included are Speaking Checklists for Levels 1-4, to make speaking assessments as Low stress as possible! You can find more details about using these Speaking Assessment Checklists here and see them in action.

Finally, a Table of Contents makes it quick and easy to jump to the level and point value you need for each rubric. Print a stack for the classes you teach, and you'll be really to roll!

Happy assessing,

AnneMarie Chase
