The Writing Lab Rubric
Use this rubric as a first step to self-assess your assignment. After determining which column you think best describes your work, use the resources to the right to improve your work. Refer back to it each time you feel you are near completion of the assignment to help you stay on track. This is also the same rubric that the Writing Lab staff will use to provide feedback and resources suggestions.
