RWA Scores -- Performance Matters

Two teachers will score each administration of the RWA on a rubric scale from 0-10 (0-5 for K-2), based on the FSA English Language Arts-based Writing Rubrics or Six Traits Rubric (K-2), and the average of the two rubric scores will be entered into Unify in Online Scoring. If you are reading this, email Mrs. Hunt with the subject line, "I read Curriculum Corner." The first three people that respond get a class-sized bottle of hand sanitizer for the coming cold/flu season. RWA can be used for a grade, but it is optional.

Math Learning Checks

  • Math assessment items may be read for K-2 students, or if the the student has oral presentation as an accommodation documented on the IEP/504.
