ELA Rubrics (Updated Spring 2009)

Writing Applications and Language Conventions Rubrics

The Writing Applications and Language Conventions Rubrics assess students' ability to communicate their ideas effectively and to use correct grammar, spelling, punctuation and Standard English as defined in the Indiana Academic Standards.

As the ISTEP+ test moved from the fall to the spring, Indiana teachers assisted in ensuring the clarity of these rubrics and their alignment to grade-level standards. The grade-level designations were adjusted to facilitate the assessment of grade-level standards.

Constructed-Response Rubric

The 2-point Constructed-Response Rubric was designed with the help of Indiana teachers to score student responses to open-ended reading comprehension questions.
