Score a Monologue

Score a Monologue

Students will score two monologues, noting the overall objective, main beats, and defined actions. Students will work individually on scoring a practice monologue and then engage in peer review. Students will then score a second monologue individually to be graded.

This assessment has four parts to it:
o Part 1–Assessment Questions
o Part 2–Score First Monologue
o Part 3–Peer Review of Score
o Part 4–Score Second Monologue

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
