Question

I am a chair of an English Department. Some teachers use a simple
points based system. I prefer a category weighted system to have a
more consistent grading policy in the department. Is there research
that helps support this approach to assessment?

If your categories are the standards it is a far superior system. With regard to the "simple
points based system" read Guskey - "The Case Against Percentage Grades" Educational
Leadership, Sept 2013.
