GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses

GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses

These rubrics allow students to review and evaluate their own work. The 'RS Checklist for Success' is more appropriate for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 learners who are middle to lower ability, and need to learn to scaffold their own work and check for completeness, SPAG, and general presentation. We use the rubric as a support for those students who are prone to making the same basic literacy errors, and who need to develop their basic written responses. The 'RS GCSE Checklist for Success provides two tables; one for Edexcel GCSE Part c) style responses (usually requiring two points that are clearly expressed and sufficiently developed, and where a source of authority is referred to); and one for Part d) style responses which require greater depth of argument with points FOR, points AGAINST and a general balanced conclusion. While developed for RS Edexcel Specification B, the tables can easily be edited and adapted to suit any essay writing needs, to encourage self-assessment and ensure students have a framework that will support progress and success.
