Support is irrelevant, overgeneralized, and/or lacking. The support, if present, is largely unrelated to the student's attempted discussion. A haphazard arrangement of ideas and/or details provides little or no direction for the discussion, and a conclusion is absent or obscure. A unifying effect and/or controlling idea is absent. Diction is overgeneralize d and/or inaccurate. Syntax is confused and uncontrolled. The writing is unclear. Lack of language choices contributes to a confusing composition with an ineffective voice. This writing demonstrates lack of control of correct sentence construction, usage, grammar, and mechanics. Jarring errors impair communication. Don't be intimidated by the scoring guide; it's really quite simple. Note that you're marked according to five categories: Thought and Understanding (your ideas and interpretations), Supporting Evidence (your evidence in support of your ideas), Form and Structure (your organization, unity, and coherence), Matters of Choice (your diction, voice, and structural choices—like parallelism and inverted sentence order), and Matters of Correctness (your mastery of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage). 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! Give yourself the mark you really think you deserve! Category Mark out of 5 possible marks Thought and Understanding Supporting Evidence Form and Structure Matters of Choice Matters of Correctness

Revelation A18 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.
