Marking criteria:
What the Assessor will be looking for when marking this assignment:

Relevance to the question: Ensure your argument addresses the question clearly and directly. Ensure that the concepts and examples you use are focused on the question that you are addressing and the argument you are making.
Critical analysis: Ensure you develop and sustain a coherent argument that is critical (examines obvious counterarguments to your argument) and is supported by providing reasons and evidence to support this position.
Evidence: Ensure relevant examples are used. This will require demonstrating careful analysis of other people’s arguments and being critical of the evidence at hand (this may require questioning the assumptions of the material you have read).
Clear essay structure: it should possess an introduction that sets out how you are going to answer the question, an essay body that considers evidence and research and then links these to your point of view, and a conclusion that reinforces your position in relation to the question.
Expression: Writing and grammar should be clear and consistent. Essay structure should consist of paragraphs of 200 words or so which contains one core idea – avoid using dot points or ‘mini-paragraphs’.
