AP ® ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION 2010 SCORING GUIDELINES (Form B) © 2010 The College Board. Visit the College Board on the Web: www.collegeboard.com. Question 1 The score should reflect a judgment of the essay’s quality as a whole. Remember that students had only 15 minutes to read the sources and 40 minutes to write; the essay, therefore, is not a finished product and should not be judged by standards appropriate for an out-of-class assignment. Evaluate the essay as a draft, making certain to reward students for what they do well. All essays, even those scored 8 or 9, may contain occasional lapses in analysis, prose style or mechanics. Such features should enter into the holistic evaluation of an essay’s overall quality. In no case may an essay with many distracting errors in grammar and mechanics be scored higher than a 2. ______________________________________________________________________________________ 9 Essays earning a score of 9 meet the criteria for a score of 8 and, in addition, are especially sophisticated in their argument, thorough in development or impressive in their control of language. 8 Effective Essays earning a score of 8 effectively evaluate daylight saving time and offer a recommendation about its continued use. They develop their position by effectively synthesizing* at least three of the sources.
