HIS1102: World Civ II Spring 2008 Instructor: Dr. Reid Midterm Examination Answer Key Part A: Identification Essays (10 points per essay, 30 points total) – See examples of 10-point essays below. The following rubric matches the overall quality of an ID essay with its respective point score: 10 points: Essay clearly identifies item using a substantial number of relevant details. Furthermore, it argues for historical significance by illustrating argument with discussion of the relationships between item and larger historical themes and/or historical contexts. In other words, the essay demonstrates a thorough understanding of the item and its context. 9 points: Essay does most of the above with, perhaps, one or two minor errors, or without all of the necessary details and/or discussion to make a convincing argument. 8 points: Essay does a good job of clearly identifying item and arguing for historical importance, but might lack some important details necessary for making a convincing argument. Essay might also miss some of the larger themes that makes the item historically meaningful. 7 points: Essay does an ok job of identifying item and arguing for historical importance, but lacks a substantial number of important details necessary for making a convincing case. Also might make more substantial errors in statements of fact. 5-6 points: Essay demonstrates a general understanding of item, but tends to rely on vague generalizations and/or presents a fairly unsubstantial discussion of relevant details. 1-4 points: Essay accurately identifies a few relevant details, but does a poor job of connecting them into a coherent essay. Essays scoring in this range may also contain fundamental factual errors demonstrating a poor understanding of the item and its historical significance.
