ASSESSMENT

This essay will be assessed on 3 main criteria:

The first important criterion is your use of language. Make sure that you write in an academic register, and avoid the first person, spelling and grammar mistakes, and colloquial or conversational language. Make sure that all sources, including the article on SMP and information you use from your textbook or other literature, is properly referenced in APA style.

The second important criterion is how you structure your paper, including the headings and the content within each section. Try not to use bullet points or tables as these take up a lot of space, and you only have 4 pages in which to make your argument. Instead ensure that you break your evaluation up into appropriate sections, with descriptive headings, that ensure that your work is logically structures. At the most basic, you could have an introduction, body, and conclusion. But you really should try and ensure that you have more descriptive headings and that your discussion is structured in such a way as to support the readability of your essay, the impact of your argument, and ensure your paper looks professional.

 

The last, and possibly most important criterion, is the argument/points that you make in your essay. You should have a clear point, or thesis, that you are trying to develop in your paper. It is not simply a summary of the assigned article. Without a strong argument or purpose, it is difficult to write a good academic paper. You should introduce your argument/point in the introduction and it should guide your structuring and evaluation of the paper, and come through once again in the conclusion.
