Critiquing & Grading
Grading writing assignments is not as straightforward as grading math assignments. Yet, grading rubrics for writing can be carefully designed, and each type of element (writing mechanics, idea development, word choice, etc) can be given an appropriate weight. If a teacher knows the breakdown and value of each element, students will know how they’re expected to write. Grading of writing assignments thus becomes much easier for the teacher.
