...Just about to post, asking the same thing! This is a very broad area... Can you be more specific?... Writing to complain/persuade... There are some sheets on here, are none of them suitable? if so, why not? If you are more specific, we will be able to help you.

On September 12th this user was asking about more or less the same issue. I directed her (?) to Cambridge scales but with no feedback. And the question keeps coming back...

In terms of developing writing skills, it īs a good idea to provide writing plans/frames/mats.
Here are some ideas.

University of Cambridge ESOL having years of experience assessing English language proficiency of candidates from all over the world came up with various exams which all contain a writing component. There is a public version of scales available for most of them (with some description) which could help you construct your own grading method. So again, here are assessment criteria for IELTS (exam that could be taken by candidates at all levels of proficiency, Band 9 corresponds to strong C2, Band 8 - strong C1, Band 6-7  is B2 etc.)
 
There are also teacher īs handbooks for other Cambridge exams (Proficiency - C2; Advanced - C1; First - B2, Preliminary - B1; Key - A2). All of them house a description of bands (=grading system) with sample texts by actual candidates and a commentary from an examiner with an actual band awarded. There are particular categories you can take into account while grading like CONTENT, ORGANISATION AND COHESION, RANGE (of vocab and structures), ACCURACY (of vocab and structures), APPROPRIACY OF REGISTER AND FORMAT.
Here are the handbooks, have a look at the writing part:
