Used this for IELTS essays, but it’s good for pretty much any subject and long pieces of writing / essays.

Easily adaptable; my criteria is describe, explain and evaluate. Each worth 5 marks tops (1 mark for grade E, 2 for D, 3 for C, 4 for B and 5 for A/A*). Total worth is 15 points.

Works really well with students if they are familiar with it. At the end of the doc they get a WWW and EBI, plus an improvement task we can give them to action upon getting the feedback.
