Standardized Evaluation Grids

The Sample Evaluation Grids/Rubrics on the following pages are intended to guide teachers in creating their own assessment grids for their courses while keeping in mind the importance of maintaining clear department standards for our core courses. The explanations within the sample grids should provide teachers with the necessary information to follow similar marking procedures and to make similar decisions about the marks students receive on their essays.

Although the mark break down teachers use for their courses may vary slightly from assignment to assignment, in general, English 101 and English KN4 focus more strongly on the expression component, while English 102 and 103 focus equally on the comprehension and insight and on the expression components.
