The HSS State Developed Common Rubric- Middle School is for use with the 2015 History and Social Science Standards of Learning. As the common rubrics for history and social science are not grade or course specific, school divisions have the opportunity and autonomy to select the common rubric that best suits the needs of their students when scoring local alternative assessments. School divisions that offer end-of-course history and social science courses to middle school students should use the HSS State Developed Common Rubric- Early Secondary rubric for scoring student work.
