  • Purpose is evident and engaging and the topic is maintained in a very meaningful way throughout
  • Is well organized and focused, demonstrating an understandable and clear development of ideas
  • It is easy to follow and moves the reader through easily with smooth and effective transitions of ideas and paragraphs
  • Details are thorough, balanced, in-depth and give meaningful insights to support the purpose
  • Clearly addresses appropriate audience
  • Is nearly free of errors in sentence structure, grammar, usage, spelling and punctuation

There are little to no gaps in the detailed structure and support of the purpose.

  • Writing has a general purpose and the topic is maintained
  • Is organized and focused, demonstrating an understandable and development of ideas
  • Details are relevant and support purpose; uses appropriate examples, reasons, and other evidence to support purpose
  • Addresses an appropriate audience
  • Is generally free of errors in sentence structure, grammar, usage, spelling and punctuation

  • Attempted or vague purpose; although stays on a general topic
  • Some sense of organization; structure is overall underdeveloped or unclear in places
  • Some details given support purpose; information may be more generalized and lack connections
  • Attempts to address an given audience
  • Is somewhat free of errors in sentence structure, grammar, usage, spelling and punctuation.
Writing resembles more of a rough draft. It may reveal some organization, but what is presented may not be clear or effective. It may contain the start of some good ideas, but these are not well developed, explained or unified. It may be over-generalized.
