Caption Grading Rubric

Since several have asked, here’s the breakdown on caption problems and what each is worth:

  • AP style errors – 1 point each
  • Grammar, spelling and punctuation errors – 2 points each
  • Missing information (contact info, credit info, who, what, when, where, why, second sentence, etc.) – 5 points each
  • Factual error (incorrect names, names or locations spelled wrong, misidentified or unidentified people or places, etc.) – 15 points

Captions are exceedingly important – make sure you’re taking the time to proofread them before submitting.
