For you, a rubric saves time and decreases subjectivity.Specific criteria are explicitly stated, facilitating the grading process and increasing your objectivity.
Though the rubrics are not explicitly designed to be used as instructional resources, the department provides the writing rubric in advance so that educators can prepare students for the writing portion of the TNReady assessment.
The TNReady writing rubrics are designed to be applied holistically rather than through a checklist.
For students, the use of grading rubrics helps them to meet or exceed expectations, to view the grading process as being fair, and to set goals for future learning.
In order to help your students meet or exceed expectations of the assignment, be sure to discuss the rubric with your students when you assign an essay.
It is helpful to show them examples of written pieces that meet and do not meet the expectations.
As an added benefit, because the criteria are explicitly stated, the use of the rubric decreases the likelihood that students will argue about the grade they receive.
The downloads for grades 3-5 includes Writing Rubrics, Informal Checklists, and the Phonics and Word Recognition Checklist.
Grading rubrics can be of great benefit to both you and your students.
Each student response is unique, and each rubric score point is broad.
Annotated student anchor papers serve as examples of how the rubrics are applied to individual papers and represent a range of performance levels.
