ACT Writing Test Scoring Rubric (New and Analytic)

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:11 AM

Interested in ACT's new analytic writing rubric? Since the beginning of ACT's writing assessment, student compositions have been scored holistically using a six-point guide. This year, ACT has adopted an analytic rubric which will be much more helpful as a tool for teachers and students in understanding where the writing succeeds and/or misses the mark.

I am not sure these are 'hacks' but there are some very good ideas on how to use Google Docs. For example, number 13 (The in-box form) gets students to submit links to their work onto a form. This means the teacher will have a list of student work and have easy access through the links!

An interesting exploration of the connection between handwriting and academic success. Yes, it does seem that kids who hand write do better in school, overall. 

It makes me wonder how many people like the "feel" of handwriting in their journal, as opposed to simply typing out a journal. I, myself, still like the feeling of writing out my emotional state. What about you?

Access to media files which are free of copyright restrictions. Despite it being common practice, cutting and pasting images from the internet or downloading audio and video files is often an infringement of copyright. A great source for teaching students about the importance of copyright and intellectual and creative integrity.
