Grading Rubric for Short Writing Responses

Grading Rubric for Short Writing Responses
A grading rubric to be used with short "formal" writing responses that are to provide a student with an idea about how effective his/her response is relative to three criteria: (1) you bring something new to the reader and provide an argument versus a data-dump of encyclopedic ideas without regard to logical progression, verifiable fact, or credibility; (2) the text is readable, appropriately written for the intended audience, and balanced; and (3) the piece is clear without significant grammatical and/or spelling errors, making it comprehensible.
