Scoring Rubric
Score of A
An A-written response or paper is a superior product. The writer will demonstrate unusual fluency, control of language, and sentence variety. An A-paper should be distinguished by the quality of the content and by the amount of detail used to support or illustrate all points. There may be a few mechanical errors, but generally, this will be an exceptionally good paper. Relevant theory is used deftly and cogently to analyze texts and situations and produce interesting, useful interpretations and new knowledge. Specific and relevant knowledge is brought to support each argument. A clear focus on the question throughout.
Score of B
A B- written response or paper will be well organized and well-developed. It will demonstrate a clear understanding of the assignment and it will complete all tasks set by the assignment. Although a B-paper may contain minor flaws, it will exhibit the writer’s ability to use language effectively and to construct sentences of appropriate variety. Relevant theory is used for the analysis of texts and situations, although the analysis may be rudimentary or simplistic at points. The initial focus on the question; may stray into a demonstration of knowledge and return to the question at the end.
Score of C
A-C- written response or paper will show adequate organization and development. It will show enough specific information to illustrate the experience described or to support generalizations. A C-paper will show an adequate use of language. Although it may contain writing errors, these errors will not be serious or frequent enough to distract the reader or to suggest major problems in writing. Theories are mentioned but not used, or not used correctly. An initial wave or nod to the question, and then off into other matters.
