Report
Writing Rubrics for the
PARCC Assessment
August 2014
Vincent Segalini
DISCLAIMER!
• The writing rubrics for the PARCC assessment
were created to score on-demand writing
tasks for an assessment. They are more
general than writing rubrics that would be
used to score writing in the classroom.
Remember:
– These rubrics are holistic.
– These rubrics are not grade specific (other than
grade 3).
Writing on the PARCC Assessment
• Students will write three responses as part of
the Performance Based Assessment (PBA).
– A literary analysis task
– A narrative task
– A research simulation task
• ALL students will definitely write a narrative
story for the narrative task.
Writing on the PARCC Assessment
• The two other writing tasks (LAT and RST) will
be a combination of:
– Informative/explanatory writing
– Opinion (3-5) or argumentative writing (6-11)
• It is not guaranteed students will write one
informative piece and one argumentative
piece. They may write two informative pieces.
It is improbable that they would write two
opinion/argumentative pieces.
Rubrics
• There are 6 different rubrics:
– Grade 3 LAT/RST (Informative/Explanatory and
Opinion) Rubric
– Grade 3 Narrative Rubric
– Grades 4-5 LAT/RST (Informative/Explanatory and
Opinion) Rubric
– Grades 4-5 Narrative Rubric
– Grades 6-11 LAT/RST (Informative/Explanatory and
Argumentative) Rubric
– Grades 6-11 Narrative Rubric
Grade 3
• There are not 4 score points for grade 3
because third grade writing lacks the
sophistication to differentiate between the
highest score points.
Scoring
• Students will receive a score for each
construct, such as 4,4,3.

Keys for Reading Comprehension
• “…ideas stated explicitly and inferentially…”
• Scorers need to see that a student
understands the texts.
– This would include evidence of understanding,
including direct references, inferences, etc.
LAT/RST Rubric
(Informative/Explanatory and Argumentative)

Keys for Written Expression
• These scores are weighted 3 times. For
example, if a student receives a 3 for Written
Expression, it is weighted as a 9.
• Students must respond to all parts of the
prompt.
• They must write in the specified discipline
(narrative, essay, etc.).
Keys to Written Expression
• The three key ideas:
– Respond to the prompt appropriately, using
evidence to show understanding.
– Organization
– Style
• Scorers will ensure that the style and
organization is effective for the specified genre
of writing.

Keys to Written Conventions
• There will be errors. They key is whether or
not these errors impact meaning.
• “…appropriate level of complexity…”
• Students need to provide enough text to
determine comprehension of conventions.
