There are four primary quality indicators

Grading Rubric: Application Assignments

12 possible points per application assignment

20 possible points for final papers

There are four primary quality indicators. All written assignments will be scored on the first three indicators (Responsiveness, Content, and Quality). The final indicator (Research, Scholarship, and Professional Style) applies to the Final Paper only and is worth double points for each criterion.

RESPONSIVENESS

(AS ASSIGNED OR AS SELECTED BY THE STUDENT IF INSTRUCTIONS ALLOW) (Did the student respond adequately to the paper or writing assignment?)

The content misses the point of the assigned or selected topic; and/or relies primarily on anecdotal evidence (e.g., largely composed of student opinion); and/or contains little or no evidence that the student has read, viewed, and considered the Learning Resources in the course and that the paper topic connects in a meaningful way to the course content. Paper or writing assignment is somewhat responsive to the requirements given in the instructions. Content is somewhat misses the point of the assigned or selected topic; and/or lacks in substance, relying more on anecdotal than scholarly evidence (e.g., largely composed of student opinion); and/or contains minimal evidence that the student has read, viewed, and considered the Learning Resources in the course and that the paper topic connects in a meaningful way to the course content. Paper or writing assignment is responsive to and meets the requirements given in the instructions. It responds to the assigned or selected topic; is substantive and evidence based; demonstrates clearly that the student has read, viewed, and considered the Learning Resources in the course and that the paper topic connects in a meaningful way to the course content. Paper or writing assignment is responsive to and exceeds the requirements given in the instructions. It responds to assigned or selected topic; demonstrates insight beyond what is required in some meaningful way (e.g., ideas contribute a new dimension to what is known about the topic, unearths something unanticipated, etc.); is substantive and evidence based; demonstrates that the student has read, viewed, and considered the learning resources in the course and that the paper topic connects in a meaningful way to the course content.

The paper meets graduate-level expectations for research, scholarship, and professional style. Paper content: demonstrates insight and contributes to knowledge in the field ; is supported by current and pertinent research/evidence (within the previous 5 years, except for seminal, original research where appropriate) from a variety of peer-reviewed books and journals (rather than textbooks and websites); uses Correct APA form and style (including citations, references, use of nonbiased language, clear organization, good editorial style, etc.) with only a few errors (Final Paper).

The paper represents exceptional research, scholarship, and professional style. Paper content: demonstrates significant insight and significantly contributes to the knowledge in the field ; is well supported by current and pertinent research/evidence (within the previous 5 years, except for seminal, original research where appropriate) from a variety of primarily primary, peer-reviewed sources (rather than textbooks and websites); and consistently uses correct APA form and style (including citations, references, use of nonbiased language, clear organization, good editorial style, etc.) with very few or no errors (Final Paper).
