Used this with my Algebra 1 students on word problems on System of Equations. Keep them motivated and allow them to repeat effective steps to make them good habits. You would be points based on their worked solution:
1 point: highlight/underline key words in question
1 point: define variables
1 point: 2 clearly written equations
1 point: working and solution
1 point sentence
I thought later you can also group them according to groups based on the row color also.
