Grade Interpetation Unacceptable (no grade recorded) - student demonstrates a level of thought which provides comments, descriptions, summaries or statements so broad and/or so generic as to make it impossible to identify the origin of the subject matter or find thoughtfulness in the commentary, or student makes no comment at all on the subject matter. Example : I really liked reading about Xhosa culture today, I think that will be important to know in South Africa.
