I use a rubric like this one.
There are a lot of examples on the internet, but it came from this site. There are rubrics out there for math, social studies, etc. too but I've just used the LA ones.
Rubrics let my girls and I both know exactly what to do & look for. :)

Quoting abuckalew:My daughter will be writing her first book report this month and I intend to teach her correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. I plan on being fairly tough (not this time) because I always tell her I have to prepare her for college and they won't be easy on her.
I haven't figured out any grading system, but I'm sure ill find something that works for us
I give the boys a rubric before they write the essay that tells them exactly what I will be grading. Usually I grade on spelling, grammar, and a selection of techniques that we are working toward. Then I use the rubric afterward to grade the essay.
I c/p into PaperRater: http://www.paperrater.com/
and use the rubric that is included in the program we use (Jensen's format writing)
Quoting Jinx-Troublex3:Essays are very subjective. I generally give 10 points each for
content- animal habitat, diet, description, behaviors, etc.
Layout - opening body conclusion, paragraph indent, not going into margins, etc
I have them write a draft before they type it that I use for the layout/neatness.
