Written Language Rubric

This is the Prekindergarten summative written language rubric. Prekindergartners are assessed in the area of writing each quarter. The goal is to see progressive growth in students’ writing over the course of the entire school year. We would expect students to reach proficiency by the end of the school year. This rubric will go home quarterly along with the report card.
