This rubric can be used to assess student written responses (short and extended) that require textual evidence as support. I have also included a second page with small matching points-only rubrics to attach to student work. I use this in my own classroom--especially on written tests over literary works (at the conclusion of a novel study).
To save paper, I send home the more detailed rubric to parents at the beginning of the year to keep at home. Then, I attach the short version of the rubric to student work throughout the year. Parents can refer to the original rubric when looking at their child's work.
I hope this works great for your students, as well!
