There is a nice article in the January 2004 issue of Mathematics Teacher titled "EMRF:Everyday Rubric Grading" by Stuzman and Race both of Littleton Colorado HS. EMRF is an abbreviation for a four-tier feedback system: E=(E)xcellent, M=(M)eets expectations, R = need (R)evision, and F = (F)ragmentary.
While the article describes a rubric feedback system which can be used in everyday classrooms, it is a good, pragmatic introduction to the concepts of rubric grading in application rather than theory. In my opinion, the ideas shared are very close to how I feel about AP Statistics grading and would be valuable reading for AP Stats teachers who are trying to get a handle on what holistic grading means and any teacher trying to do more holistic grading in their classroom.
