Rubric

90-100     These one-pagers include all the required parts in a pleasing, artistic, colorful design. The quotations, key words, and illustration/picture/symbol are thoughtful and clearly significant to the novel. There are no distracting errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar.

80-89       These one-pagers also include all the required parts, but are not as sophisticated or do not reflect as much care and concern as the above category. The quotations, key words, and illustration/picture/symbol may not be as thoughtful or as clearly significant to the novel. There may be a few errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar.

70-79       These one-pagers are missing some of the elements and/or are done in a merely perfunctory way to fulfill the assignment. The quotations, key words, and illustration/picture/symbol are not as thoughtful or do not seem significant to the novel. There may be several errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar.

60-69       These one-pagers reflect shoddy, careless work and/or are incomplete. The quotations, key words, and illustration/picture/symbol are not thoughtful or do not seem significant to the novel. There may be numerous errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar.
