The purposes of this research were to develop essays rubrics such as three criterion scoring methods and to examine the generalized ability characteristics of the raters with different experiences and using different rubrics. The research instrument was the criteria for scoring. The sample consisted of English teachers with less than 5 years of teaching experience and more than 10 years of teaching experience and 120 high school students. Three types of scoring methods were used. The reliability scores ranged from .825 to .833 and the characteristics of the inspectors were as follows: 1) the raters’ characteristic using analytic rubrics was 2 severities, 1 leniency and 5 neutral. 2) There were 2 strict, 3 lenient and 3 neutral in holistic rubric using. 3) The criterion for checklists was strict 2 people, 4 lenient and 2 neutral. When compared with the experience group, different experienced raters did not make the feature score differently. There were 3 respondents (37.5%) having consistent characteristics when using any criteria. And no one who evaluates the extremes transport characteristic from severe to lenient or lenient to severe.
