Marking Guide for the APSC 150 Engineering Failure Report The failure report is marked twice: once for English usage and once for technical content. Each time, the report is marked out of 10, then combined equally for a total of 20 marks. A mark of “F” on the English usage component of the report grade indicates an unacceptable level of English usage. A grade of “F” will be interpreted as 4/10 for the purpose of calculated an overall grade. It also serves as a warning that more care is required in the future around English usage. The following is a table of grades given for various parts of the technical component of an engineering failure report.
