40%

 

The writer does not demonstrate cursory understanding of subject matter, and the purpose of the paper is not stated.  The objective, therefore, is not addressed and supporting materials are not correctly referenced.


27.9 or FEWER POINTS

The writer demonstrates limited understanding of the subject matter in that theories are not well connected to a practical experience or appropriate examples, though the attempt to research the topic is evident, and materials are correctly referenced.


28 to 35.9 POINTS

36 to 40 POINTS

ORGANIZATION

30%

 

Paragraphs do not focus around a central point, and concepts are disjointedly introduced or poorly defended (i.e., stream of consciousness).

 

 

 

 

20.9 or FEWER POINTS

Topics/content could be organized in a more logical manner.  Transitions from one idea to the next are often disconnected and uneven.

 

 

 

21 to 26.9 POINTS  

The writer focuses on ideas and concepts within paragraphs, and sentences are well-connected and meaningful.  Each topic logically follows the objective.  The introduction clearly states the objective, ideas leading to the purpose of the paper, and a conclusion draws the ideas together.

READABILITY & STYLE

15 %

 

The writer struggles with limited vocabulary and has difficulty conveying meaning such that only the broadest, most general messages are presented.

10.5  to 13.4 POINTS
