Master of Education (MEd)
The lack of consistency between writing rubrics and a common writing curriculum used at the elementary level was addressed in this research. Through the use of a spreadsheet containing key concepts and skills, the researchers found frequent inconsistencies among the two documents and that there is no evidence of actual alignment. Recommendations would be for the district to thoroughly examine both documents and to create a strong alignment for better instruction.
