Rubrics

I try my best to provide quick feedback. Turnaround time for major assignments is at least a week. I grade all assignments according to the following criteria and weight:

Content (C) 25%

• content is strong; offers sharp insights, comments, interpretations, analysis; engages with interesting and complex questions; explores meaningful issues or circumstances

• sense of purpose and ownership is clear; writer is in the essay

• shows genuine thinking and working through of subject matter/topic

• MLA Style issues not potential academic dishonesty will count under content (i.e. poorly integrated sources).

• Any document that does not use proper MLA format will receive a one letter grade reduction.

• Potential academic dishonesty will get addressed following plagiarism protocol.

• Failing to complete all discussions for a forum including the required responses to peers will count under Content.

Organization (O) 25%

• overall structure of thoughts and ideas is logical and sound

• essay follows clear, coherent line of development

• paragraph structure is clear, logical, and sound

• shows ability to guide readers; uses smooth transitions

Style/Language (S/L) 25%

• voice and tone are appropriate for topic

• uses focused, concise, and specific writing

• wording is appropriate, detailed, and precise

• informal language, slang, colloquialisms, idioms, clichés, contractions, etc. are not used

• Unless you have permission to use 1st or 2nd person, use of such will be counted here.

• Excessive use of 1st or 2nd person will result in a one letter grade reduction.

Sentence Structure/Grammar (SS/G) 25%

• sentence structure is clear, logical, and sound
