Grading Sentence Diagrams?


Recommended Posts

I have always graded a sentence diagram as right or wrong. Either you got the whole thing right or you didn't. DS12 is getting into some pretty complex diagrams now and it seems harsh to count the entire diagram wrong because he got two adverbs, one of which modifies the other, backwards.


How do you grade diagrams?

What I did last night was assign 2-3 points for each diagram. 1 point for the subject and its modifiers, 1 for the verb and its modifiers and one for predicate adjective/nominative or direct object and its modifiers if the sentence had one. I may move to the 1 point per word system though.
