How can educators assess the progress of their primary students’ writing skills using rubrics?

Great course and resources!

I found this course really helpful. I learned a ton of new information and strategies on how to build rubrics to track my students’ mastery in writing. I have always struggled with consistently grading my writing students, with the rubric strategies here, I can now do this much more quickly and consistently. Highly recommend!
