0308enk - 3 - September 3, 2003 POETRY SCORING GUIDE This question tests both the reading and the writing abilities of the student. Your mark must reflect both the accuracy of the reading as well as the fluency of the writing. This guide should be adequate for most papers; however, if you come across a paper that is problematic, please double-check with the chair or sub-chair. It is essential to remember that this is a draft work ; even high-level papers are likely to have the odd error — whether in analysis or writing. Such mistakes should be considered as part of the paper’s holistic mark, but should not necessarily result in an automatic drop in the score. However, a paper containing errors so distracting that they impede understanding should not be given a mark of more than three; a two would be more likely. Please remember that references to the text may be explicit or implicit. References to lines solely by number should be ignored . Higher-level papers tend to present the attitudes of the speaker with direct and appropriate reference to the text. Significant awareness of the connotation of words is often evident. Mid-level papers list the attitudes of the speaker often simply in the order presented in the poem. Confusion between speaker and poet is common. Lower-level papers often misread the poem or present an interpretation so rudimentary as to be inaccurate.

0308enk - 4 - September 3, 2003 6 Answer The six response is superior and may draw upon any number of factors such as effectiveness of argument and level of insight. The six response exhibits an effective writing style and a sophisticated use of language. Despite its clarity and precision, this response need not be error-free. 5 Answer The five response reflects a strong grasp of the topic and the poem. The references to the poem may be explicit or implicit and convincingly support the student’s point of view. In both understanding and writing, the paper is proficient. The writing is well organized and reflects a strong command of the conventions of language.
