Criteria for assessing the Essay


When your work is marked close attention will be given to how well you have fulfilled the learning outcomes. It will be graded according to the grading criteria for essaysgiven later in this handbook. To summarise, your assignment work will be judged according to how much it provides evidence of your ability to:


a.    Understand the topic, its main issues and its literature;

b.    Research a good range of appropriate sources;

c.    Use all of these sources in your work, critically and creatively;

d.    Structure assignments clearly and readably;

e.    Give critical analysis of the issues which you have identified;

f.     Provide full and accurate references, using academic conventions;

g.    Write with good spelling and grammar (the University has strong support systems for those who have difficulty with this);

h.    Meet any other criteria associated with the particular assignment (e.g. oral communication, reflection);


i.      Fulfils the guidance for submission of assignments, above.


10. Marking of your Assignments


Feedback and Grading


Comments on your assignments will be made on standardised feedback sheets. When your work has been first marked (within one month of the hand-in date) you will receive a provisional mark and grade on Moodle.


Comments will be constructive and provide you with appropriate feedback, which will be linked to the learning outcomes and will support you in your future learning and development.



You will be awarded a Grade and a Mark for your work. At YSJ the mark range is from 0-100. An A grade is awarded for marks of 70 and above; B for 60 – 69; C for 50 – 59; D for 40 – 49; F for 20 – 39; 0 – 20 for non-submission or non-serious attempt. We would expect the largest percentage of students to achieve B and C grades, with a smaller percentage achieving A and D. An A grade is an indication of first class work, and is awarded for really excellent work. B is very good. Some students feel, wrongly so, that the C grade is mediocre. It is a perfectly respectable grade, indicating good work, and an indication that you are achieving the requirements of undergraduate level. D is borderline, but still denotes a pass. All of these grades signify achievement of learning outcomes and the potential to complete the degree successfully.
