Common Core State Standards Writing Rubrics Grades 9-10

Many institutions are seeking ways to implement the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) or align curricula across secondary and higher education to better support student success.

Turnitin has partnered with the English Professional Learning Council (EPLC) to develop three writing rubrics—argument, informative and narrative—that are aligned with the CCSS. These rubrics help instructors convey their expectations to students, grade submitted work against the CCSS, provide critical feedback, and track student progress.

To receive a MS Word file of the rubrics to edit or distribute in your classroom, please complete the form.

NOTE: The CCSS-aligned rubrics are currently available for use in GradeMark for Turnitin customers at secondary schools and 2-year colleges.
