On a standardized writing test, your answer is worth 2 points. The examples below show acceptable responses that got the full 2 points, and those that got 1 point.

SCORE POINT 2

A complete response will provide one of the following explanations about what Yurik's dialogue in paragraph 3 suggests about the relationship between Yurik and Luda:

o Yurik takes advantage of Luda because she is new to the area.

o Yurik plans to trick Luda into helping him do work without much reward.


A complete response may include, but is not limited to, the following evidence cited or paraphrased from the text:

o “‘Ahh, then we must plant turnips this season.’” (paragraph 3)

o “‘I will keep the root portions, and you can keep the parts that grow above the ground.’” (paragraph 3)


• Evidence is accurately used to support the response.

• The response and the evidence to support it are based on the text.


Student Response Example #1:

she takes the bad part. I know this because the passege says "I will keep the

root portions, and you can keep the parts that grow above the ground."
