Read each essay before beginning evaluation
easy to read
easy to understand and follow the writing
reflect on attention grabber, thesis, topic and closing sentences, details and commentary, word choice, sentence beginnings and types, and conclusion
Review each writing trait on the rubric and the rubric guide, assign a score of 1-4 based on evidence in the essay, and move to the next trait to repeat the process.
Carousel until all papers are evaluated, discuss the individual scoring, and come to consensus for a final marking of 1-4 on the rubric. Again, we will underline the areas on the rubric leading to the score.
X = all of this fits the majority of the essay
circle = would have been scored one higher but for the underlined portion
square = would have been scored two higher but for the underlined portion
triangle = would have been scored three higher but for the underlined portion
