Criteria Ratings Pts
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome
How well did you answer the question that was being asked?

45 pts
Yes, yes, yes, you GET it! Three cheers and a tiger for you! Or, you wrote a lesser-quality essay but said something highly original and insightful that pleased me or sparked my interest.
39 pts
This is very solid, but not quite A-level. You said more than one obvious thing, and you put a bit of thought into it.
35 pts
Okay, this is acceptable. You said some obvious things, but not much more. You may have written something very good but also very narrow in scope.
20 pts
You made more than a few errors in fact and/or logic, or you made one SERIOUS mistake Or, you went a bit off-the-rails in terms of addressing the topic.
1 pts
No. You are either completely off-target in understanding the question, or you had so many mistakes in fact or logic that this was the only possible score.
45 pts
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome
Did you bring up details to support your argument in the form of footnotes and a source list? Were they any good?

NOTE: your maximum assignment grade will be capped at 90 if you are not properly using Chicago/Turabian, and/or you didn’t use an assigned reading that was clearly meant to be used here.

30 pts
Very Detailed
Lots of details, properly sourced, and you remembered to use what you were assigned to read (in addition to anything else you read).
24 pts
An acceptable level of detail.
18 pts
Substandard OR Messed Up Footnotes
Very few factual details for back-up; OR You messed up your citations badly enough that I had to call you out on it, e.g. no page numbers or URL.
10 pts
Source list but no actual notes
You MUST have footnotes so that I know you’re not just making things up and saying you got them from someplace else.
0 pts
No sources of any kind
No sources or footnotes at all. There is no excuse for this.
30 pts
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome
Was the argument clear and easy to follow?

14 pts
Highly Organized
This was easy and fun to read, I could quickly figure out the question and its answer(s), and I could tell what your argument was without having to hunt for it.
8 pts
You narrate instead of analyzing, or you failed to give me a proper introduction (with thesis statement) and/or conclusion. Alternatively, your argument “runs together” at points as you cram too many different threads into the same paragraph(s).
5 pts
Either Jumping Around or Attack of the Blob
You jump around too much and it hides your point(s). Failure to separate into paragraphs automatically lands you this score as well.
0 pts
You are are all over the place. This is like a stream-of-consciousness essay, not a history essay. I can’t understand what you’re trying to say here.
14 pts
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome
Mechanics, grammar, etc
Did you proofread your paper before turning it in?

11 pts
Thank you for taking pride in your work
I can live with this. You had fewer than five mistakes in spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.
6 pts
You could have done a better job of proofreading here, as you had five or more mistakes in spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.
0 pts
You Clearly Did Not Proofread
This is rough-draft writing: ten or more mistakes in spelling, grammar, mechanics, etc.
