Take the guess-work out of grading student writing with this week's FREE tool! We have a one-page grading rubric that will help you evaluate student writing fairly and consistently. Sections of the rubric will help you rate a student's mastery of composition, style, sentences, usage, and mechanics. Use it to assign grades, apply it to drafts to guide student revisions, adapt line items for varied skill levels, and incorporate it into peer evaluations. For more great writing tips and tools like this one, check out CEC's Recipe for Writing, an engaging workbook that breaks writing instruction into 18 step-by-step lessons that make writing feel more manageable for everybody.
