COMMENT/GRADE

General Marking Criteria for Report and Essay

E or F (Under 40%) There is evidence, or minimal evidence of relevant background reading. The response is largely irrelevant and is badly organised. There are few discernible arguments and very little analysis or evaluation. There is very little evidence of an understanding of the key concepts, theories and applications related to the topic. The language used is largely inappropriate or inaccurate, with major weaknesses in expression and/or in spelling.
D(40 – 49%) Description of events, concepts and basic strategies. There is evidence of some relevant background reading. Although relevant, the response is general and largely descriptive. The arguments are not well developed, and include little sustained analysis or evaluation. There is some understanding of key concepts, theories and applications related to the topic, but a number of misunderstandings are present. The language used is usually appropriate but displays a number of spelling errors and/or weaknesses in expression.
C(50 – 59%) Attempts to reflect theoretical debate. There is evidence of relevant background reading. The response is sound, with some detail and some evidence of structure. The argument is soundly developed and includes some analysis and evaluation. Key concepts, theories and applications related to the topic are grasped, though not always fully understood. The use of language is mainly correct and appropriate (though there may be examples of poor expression and/or inaccurate spelling).
B (60 – 69%) Application of concepts and theories to real-world problems. There is evidence of thorough background reading. The response is very sound, with considerable detail and a clear structure. The argument is clear, with sound analysis and evaluation. There is evidence of a clear understanding of key concepts, theories and applications related to the topic.
A (70% +) All the above, with evidence of independent research, original thought application and development of theoretical understanding. There is evidence of an impressive range of relevant reading. The response is full, detailed and well structured. The argument is clear, comprehensive, analytical and evaluative. There is evidence of a thorough understanding of key concepts, theories and applications related to this topic. The language is excellent, with well-chosen vocabulary, accurate spelling, appropriate syntax and a sense of style.
