Makes well structured arguments, that may be theoretically informed, with very good use of relevant evidence. There will be clear evidence of awareness of current/relevant debates. Offers a wide range of references, and is fully and correctly referenced throughout. Marks over 80% indicate an exceptional piece of work which excels in all these areas.

Sources may be inadequately cited.
30-39% FAIL: A partial and superficial response to the task. Uses a minimal range of reading or shows no evidence of reading. May be repetitious consisting of a string of weak assertions/opinions which may not relate to each other and without supporting evidence. Very poor planning and presentation. No awareness of theoretical perspectives or misunderstanding of key concepts. Sources inadequately cited or not cited.
0-29% FAIL : Very poor work. Little or no understanding of subject. Poorly organised and confused argument. Little or no evidence of planning or presentation skills. Question not addressed and little or no knowledge of the topic.
