There are different traits that we look for when
assessing a piece of student writing. Teachers are taught to look for
writing that has interesting ideas, clear organization, and, of course,
Quick writes are rarely assessed on quality. If you wish
to assign an effort mark that is acceptable.
Writing prompts and genre writing [rubric]
make up a portion of the mark for Writing Circles because students
are working in writing circles about the work they are attempting
or working independently.
While students work I conference either individually or
with a group. I would suggest you use your
tracking notes to get
a final mark.
Part of the final mark is based on number of good copies
handed in. Judge these on the six traits writing
rubric. You may have five good
copies = 20% each or four = 25% each. I use a scale of 1-5 for my
marking and then average these.
Another mark is group mark. I would use this
rubric for it.
