You will upload a copy of the paper that does NOT have your name or the professor’s name as a word .doc or .pdf by 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, May 4th. Of course, I will be grading this submission, but this submission will also be evaluated by other faculty members for purposes of measuring collegewide effectiveness (not having a professor’s name or a student’s name on the submission is designed to prevent bias).

Issue/ problem to be considered critically is stated, described, and clarified so that understanding is not seriously impeded by omissions.

Issue/ problem to be considered critically is stated but description leaves some terms undefined, ambiguities unexplored, boundaries undetermined, and/ or backgrounds unknown.

Issue/ problem to be considered critically is stated without clarification or description.

Evidence

Information is taken from expert source(s) with enough interpretation/ evaluation to develop a comprehensive analysis or synthesis.

Position/Analysis presented (perspective, thesis/hypothesis)

thesis/hypothesis) is stated, but is simplistic and obvious.

Conclusions and related outcomes (implications and consequences)

Conclusions and related outcomes (consequences and implications) are logical and reflect informed evaluation.

Conclusion is logically tied to a range of information, including opposing viewpoints; related outcomes (consequences and implications) are identified clearly.

Conclusion is logically tied to information (because information is chosen to fit the desired conclusion); some related outcomes (consequences and implications) are identified clearly.

Conclusion is inconsistently tied to some of the information discussed; related outcomes (consequences and implications) are oversimplified.
