                O.P.E.N. PRACTICE SCORING
             Oregon Public Education Network


  The primary objective for the creation of this Practice
  Scoring application by the Oregon Public Education Network
  (O.P.E.N.) is to educate and instruct teachers, parents,
  and students on the scoring of student work.

  While particularly interesting to those living in Oregon,
  this site provides all stakeholders in mathematics education
  with a real-world example of rubric scoring.

  The following levels of mathematics papers are available:
    - Grade 5
    - Grade 8
    - Grade 10

  The Getting Started papers explain the process used.
