The MAAP English Language Arts (ELA) Writing Rubric is used to score multiple genres of writing across multiple grade levels on statewide assessments. The rubric is used to score opinion and argumentative writing, informative writing, and narrative writing of students in grades 3-8 and End-of-Course.
The Office of Elementary Education and Reading, in collaboration with the Office of Student Assessment, has developed the MDE MS Questar Writing Rubric Webinar and MDE MS Questar Writing Rubric Training Resource Document (attached) to assist teachers with delivering effective writing instruction by providing tips and sample annotations for each MAAP ELA Writing Rubric domain.
You may access the webinar by visiting https://www.mdek12.org/Literacy or https://youtu.be/C8zrgivKL9o. If you have questions, please contact Jill Hoda, Assistant State Literacy Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Melissa Beck, K-3 Data Coordinator, at email@example.com.
