QU101 General Essay Grading Rubric An “A” Paper : 9 The "A" essay demonstrates a detailed understanding of the topic or advances a particularly insightful reading of a text; it has something interesting to say and supports it fully; it exhibits few or no mechanical mistakes; its sentences are not only clear but lively; the essay may very well evince unusual flexibility or inventiveness with words or structures that result in an individual style or are used for particular rhetorical effects. A “B” Paper : 9 The "B" essay is competent but not striking: the writer has a clear thesis and a good sense of audience; the writer is in control of the direction of the essay and uses a reasonable principle of organization to develop her ideas; the writer's ideas are reasonable, and she uses appropriate evidence to support her ideas; there are no major mechanical errors. A “C” Paper : 9 The "C" essay has a weak or fuzzy thesis; there may be some disjunction between the announced thesis and the discussion which follows; the writer may rely on the readily apparent or the cliche; examples and evidence may be offered to prove that the writer has researched her topic or has read the text, not to advance an argument; the essay has no clear organizational principle or may adopt the same one used in the text; the essay may contain many mechanical errors. A “D” Paper
