Grade 10 English MCAS writing prompts are scored based on two components.
For topic development, students are scored based on a six-score point scale, with students receiving from 2 to 12 points. Points are earned based on how complete the student answers all parts to the multiple part question. It also includes how well the writing uses supporting details and focus to answer the question.
Standard English Conventions
For Standard English conventions, students are scored based on a four-point scale, with students receiving from 2 to 8 points. Points are earned based on proper grammar and punctuation.
Both scores are added together. The maximum score a student can receive is 20 points. For help receiving the highest MCAS test scores possible, contact Y3K Tutor In Your Home today! We have helped many students receive high scores on these tests.
