FSA ELA Writing Scoring Samplers

The FSA ELA Writing Scoring Sampler can be used as a resource regarding the scoring of student responses on the writing component of the statewide ELA assessments. In each sampler, examples of student responses represent various combinations of the score points across the scoring domains. As a basis for developing a common understanding of the scoring criteria, an annotation follows the response to explain the prominent characteristics of the response described in the rubric. (The applicable rubric is also included in each sampler.) These responses are not intended to provide a full spectrum of examples for each score point in each domain. Moreover, they do not necessarily represent the highest or lowest example of each score point in each domain. These sets have been updated to include a sample of a response earning 0 for copied text. The passage (text) set and text-based writing prompt can be accessed via a hyperlink provided in each sampler. (Updated 1/25/18)
