This is a huge improvement over the typical "some evidence was insufficient and/or irrelevant" descriptor in a traditional rubric.
That's why you'll see much more specific language in the sentence-level and paragraph-level feedback comments; instead of "some body paragraphs are..." you'll see "this body paragraph is..."
That being said, whole document rubric elements are also supported. Plenty of typical rubric elements (e.g. "Organization" or "Voice") are overall categories by nature and don't require the drill-down granularity of the sentence- or paragraph-level.
We expect a typical EssayTagger rubric to make use of all three scope levels.

You're free to print it out or copy-and-paste and alter the rubric for your own use however you like. We're trying to build an open community of shared rubrics for all teachers to take advantage of.
However, do note that these rubrics are designed to work at a deeper level of specificity than is normally possible/practical with traditional rubrics (see above FAQ item). It's very difficult to use a paper-based rubric to evaluate essays at a sentence- or paragraph-level of specificity.
We're big believers in this deeper level of specificity and, obviously, we think EssayTagger's system is the most efficient way to drill down deep into the students' work and give them the very specific guidance and feedback they need in order to improve.
Once you've imported the rubric, you can:
- add / edit / delete rubric elements
- change an element's scope (e.g. "sentence-level" to "whole document")
- change the quality labels (e.g. "Level 3" to "Needs Work")
- most importantly: add your own feedback comments so that students recognize your voice and your feedback style.
