PARCC Prep: Suggested Grading Conversion Charts for PARCC ELA Rubrics

LITERACY AND THE COMMON COREAs you probably know, the PARCC ELA Writing Rubrics have been revised a few times. I have previously blogged about the rubrics HERE.

If you are trying to convert scores from PARCC ELA rubrics to grades for your grade book, this post, which includes two versions, may help. The accompanying explanations should help you decide which rubrics (and charts) to use.

For a free downloadable version of the charts below (in Excel format), click here: suggested-grading-conversion-charts-for-parcc-ela-rubrics.
