Rubric

Contributed by: Kentucky Department of Education (KDE)

Locate the task's first prompt, the related Scoring Guide, and the sample of student responses for all score points. The Scoring guides, based on a 5,4, or 3-point scale, provide descriptions of student work at each score point for each item. To summarize very briefly, the rubric shell states that a response accurately meeting all important requirements of a prompt earns a 4 (top score), a response meeting most requirements earns a 3, a 2 is earned if some of the requirements are met, a 1 applies to a minimal response to the prompt, and a response that is totally incorrect earns a 0.

Score points in which major response patterns were evident have descriptions separated by "OR." Keep in mind that scores are set by state assessment standards and may not necessarily represent classroom standards.
