Holistic Grading

A = The “Wow” Paper: Effective, insightful, strong analysis that all support the thesis. References to literature that are specific and appropriate. Writing is clear, sophisticated and persuasive. Few grammatical errors and no serious ones.

B = The “Good” Paper: Effective, well-developed response. Good analysis with clear and thorough explanation. Errors should not be severe enough to hurt the effectiveness of the essay.

C = The “Average” Paper: Addresses the topic in a clear way. Provides good development although the discussion is not as thorough as the A and B papers. Offers support from the literature and some analysis. There may be errors but they should not overwhelm the essay.

D= The “Work in progress” Paper: A serious attempt but inadequate development or organization, excessive errors, lack of support, lack of logic.

F = “Thank you for playing” Paper: serious flaws in reasoning, development and/or writing. Shows a lack of control.
