In each of the three assessments, students will generate their own text and analyze text generated by others. The varied contexts contained in language arts literacy will enable students to demonstrate their knowledge of language use and will further develop their literacy experiences. Students will encounter performance-based tasks for writing, as well as multiple-choice and open-ended items for reading.

The Grade 3 Assessment and Instructional Guide contains the scoring rubric; types of writing required by the CCGPS narrative, informational and persuasive ; good practices for the instruction of writing; sample student papers; and ways to evaluate student writing.
Using representative samples of student writing, third-grade teachers are to use the analytic scoring rubrics in the Guide to determine the performance levels in each domain for each child in the classroom.
Teachers collect writing samples by providing many opportunities for students to produce the various types of writing throughout the year. Narrative Relating Personal Experience-Writing assignments should direct students to recount an event grounded in their own experiences.
The assignment should elicit a story with a plot and characters rather than a list. Creating an Imaginative Story-Writing Assignments should direct students to produce stories that are grounded in imagination or fantasy.
Informational Writing Assignments may be related to all content areas specified in the Grade 3 GPS and may be produced during content area instruction. Writing assignments may be related to any type of non-fiction writing whose purpose is to inform or explain a topic to a reader.
Students should incorporate information from resources books, on-line sources, etc. Paraphrasing information and using technical vocabulary from source material is appropriate for the informational assessment sample.
For example, the informational samples collected for this guide on the topic of minerals may use technical vocabulary such as igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary rocks. Persuasive The writing assignment should direct students to take a position on an issue or topic that they are familiar with.
The assignment may occur after the class has researched the issue or read related texts. The assignment may be part of a lesson on the issue in a particular content area Analytic and Holistic Scoring The scoring system is analytic.
Analytic scoring means that more than one feature or domain of a paper is evaluated. Each domain itself is scored holistically.
Student writing will be assessed analytically in four domains: Ideas, Organization, Style, and Conventions. Analytic scoring will provide detailed information on student writing including performance levels. Teachers may choose to teach all four genres of writing throughout the school year or teachers may choose to teach each genre at a particular time in the school year.
The writing process should be taught throughout the third grade year, regardless of the order in which the genres are taught.
The steps of the writing process prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing should be taught throughout the year, because third graders may not have fully learned this process and will need help applying each stage of the process to each genre of writing.
For each genre, teachers should model the steps of the writing process, providing assistance and conferencing at each step. The assessment sample is the piece of writing that the teacher selects for the Grade 3 Writing Assessment.Narrative Writing Pre-Assessment Prompts.
