The Narrative Standards Referenced Writing Rubrics have been updated. There has been a slight change for grades 7 and 8 in the quarterly writing assessment sequence. The ELA Standards shift their emphasis from narrative to informative writing and to support this shift, we will assess informative writing in both first and second quarter.
Argument Opinion Writing will remain in place for all grade levels for the third quarter.
Quarter 1: K-6 – Narrative, 7/8 Informative, 9-12 Narrative
Quarter 2: K-12 – Informative
Quarter 3: K-12 Argument/Opinion
*Research – W.4 is assessed when it makes best sense for the teacher to do so.
Prompts, directions and scoring guides will be updated shortly. Information regarding the quarterly writing assessments will be posted on the Instruction Blog, the web page and emailed directly to principals, PD Liaisons, and School Assessment Coordinators.
