Rough Drafts, 10 pts.

10 pts. Excellent: The draft demonstrates superior knowledge of the text(s) by specifically citing 2-3 examples, including
direct quotations, which are analyzed in detail. The draft directly answers the question, and an argument is beginning to
emerge.

9 pts. Very good: The draft cites 1-2 examples, with at least one direct quotation. It directly answers the prompt, but the
argument is not yet crystal clear.

8 pts. Good: The draft demonstrates a close reading of the text(s) with use of specific examples, but lacks direct citations or
quotes. It answers the prompt, but does not contain a specific argument. The analysis needs development.

7 pts. Needs improvement: The draft contains a partial answer to the prompt but without specific examples and information.
There is no argument present. This draft may have one or two errors. Some analysis, but not thoroughly developed. The
language and main points are very general.

useful in the final draft, but does not explore it fully. There are multiple errors and/or a lack of analysis.

contains little solid information and/or many errors.
