Share exemplars to inform student work

Students who were provided exemplars from different levels of achievement experienced significant increases to their grades compared to students who were not given exemplars. Exemplars can help make complex grading criteria more understandable to students, and sharing “real student work” of different standards with students has been shown to help them recognize quality writing for themselves (Scoles, 2013).
