1 = I could not find it; it is either too unclear for me to determine its existence in the essay or it is not in the

essay. Definitely needs to be reworked or added. 3 = I found it but needs to be reworked because it contradicts the point of the paper or just does not make enough sense to the reader. Should not be accepted as it is. 5 = It is clearly identifiable but could use some rewording to improve its effectiveness in the essay. Needs to be strengthened so as to improve essay. 7 = Clear and appropriate. Helps support essay. This element fits together well with other elements of the essay to help support the thesis. 9 = It is fantastic; nearly worth an award for great writing in an essay. Reading this single part made the whole assignment worth the work. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better writer.
