Reflection: Grade Book and Data Analysis Personal Narratives: Publishing - Section 4: Closure


A few years ago, our grade level decided it was important to have a writing assessment measure that was consistent with other grade levels. The second grade team recently had completed a rubric they were going to use and we borrowed a copy. For the most part, it addressed all of the areas we wanted to assess in the third grade. We updated the language to match our standards and added on a section that addressed specific writing type expectations and adopted it as our new rubric. I felt this was incredibly helpful for both teachers and students. It not only helped us to focus our assessments of students’ work, but also gave some consistency of what students could expect between the grades.
