Grading Rubric Essays High School
Used in classrooms nationwide, writing rubrics give teachers and students a common reference point to discuss the components of good writing—from content development and organization to sentence structure and grammar.
There is also a growing recognition that good writing is not merely a sum of its parts, and essay grading should also take into consideration the overall effectiveness of the writing.
School districts, states, and standardized test administrators often hire trained readers to evaluate each student’s writing test using this holistic approach, as well as rubrics and anchor papers for each grade.
Correct word usage, punctuation, sentence structure, and grammar; correct citation of sources; minimal to no spelling errors; absolutely no run-on sentences or comma splices.
