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 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. 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.
