Sample Grading Guide For Essays
This guide is adapted from a grading guide developed by William Irmscher, who evaluated in five areas; content, form, diction, correctness and style. This guide focuses on content, form, rhetorical awareness, mechanics, and style and diction. Note that this is only a general guide and that the context and nature of the specific assignment will suggest additional or alternate criteria.
