In each category, you can get up to five marks—for a total of 25 on the paper (on your Diploma Exam, somewhat more weight is given to the first two categories). The guide makes an attempt to describe what you must do to earn 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 mark in each category. Your job now is to examine the guide carefully in order to become more familiar with it. Then, in the chart provided here, assess your own critical response in question 2 by assigning yourself a mark for each category. Try to be fair, and don't succumb to false modesty!

Revelation A18 Thought and Understanding 5 – I believe that my ideas are insightful and at the same time demonstrate a comprehension of subtle distinctions in the literary text and the topic. As well I believe that the literary interpretations are perceptive and illuminating. Supporting Evidence 5 – I believe that the supporting evidence that I chose to use for my piece are explicit, precise, and deliberately chosen to reinforce the presented ideas. As well I also believe that a strong connection to those ideas is present. Form and Structure 4 – I believe that a considered arrangement of ideas and details contributes to a competent, controlled discussion that concludes appropriately. The unifying effect and controlling ideas are sustained and coherently presented. Matters of Choice 5 – I believe that the diction used is precise and effective. Syntactical structures are effective and sometimes polished. Stylistic choices contribute to a confident composition with a convincing voice. Matters of Correctness 5 - This writing demonstrates confidence in control of correct sentence construction, usage, grammar, and mechanics. The relative absence of error is impressive considering the complexity of the response and the circumstances. Now, as you've done before, your job is to explain, or justify, the mark you gave yourself in each of the five categories of the marking guide. Refer specifically to the descriptions in the relevant boxes and to aspects of your own response that you feel illustrate those descriptions.
