(List what a 4 paper looks like as a whole, a 3 paper, and a 2 paper) This is all assumed that you are grading on a four-level tier. Instead you could describe what an A paper looks like, a B paper looks like, etc. The point for a holistic rubric is you grade the paper as a WHOLE. All descriptors are listed underneath the score.
2. The rating scale rubric should include specific descriptors for spelling/grammar/punctuation, organization, content, and any other items you want to include. A rating scale rubric will list each of the above characteristics and how you can earn X amount of points for each. Think of it as a graph list your descriptors on the X axis, the points possible (4, 3, 2, 1) or (Very Good, Good, Satisfactory, Needs Improvement) on the Y axis. Then, fill in the graph stating what do I need for content to earn a 4, a 3, a 2. Then do each descriptor separately.
