your argument
Unfolds an argument
lucidly. Proposes the
candidate’s argument
clearly and develops it
systematically.
Conclusion expresses
the candidate’s own
judgement in a mature
way.
Well-argued. Different
arguments presented
clearly. Introduction sets
out problem(s) and
method of approach.
Concludes with a
synthesis that is not just
a summary.
An attempted argument,
even if it does not
always flow smoothly,
with a conclusion
summarising the
position argued. Not
always clearly
structured.
A discussion of relevant
points in some order.
Does not always answer
the question directly.
An assortment of points
without apparent
structure.
Deep and detailed
knowledge and
understanding, with
sophisticated use of
concepts. Shows wideranging awareness of
context, and an
independent approach
to the issues. Makes
original and insightful
connections.
Good knowledge and
understanding with
accurate and wellcontextualized use of
concepts/technical
terms. Shows
awareness of the
implications of issues
raised. Shows some
independent judgement.
Shows general
knowledge and
understanding.
Relevant issues are
discussed and
concepts/technical
terms are used, but not
always appropriately.
Essay is working in the
right area, but the
candidate has not
identified the key issues
and/or has handled
material inaccurately.
Essay misses the point
of the question.
Concepts/technical
terms have been
mishandled and the
material misunderstood.
Excellent range of
primary sources (songs,
videos) and depth of
reference to sources.
Argument based directly
in sources, and engages
critically with secondary
interpretations (Popular
Music Studies).
Critical use of sources,
showing ability to make
comparisons between
different secondary
interpretations, to quote
aptly and to reference
accurately. Refs follow
the conventions.
Use of several sources,
though summarizing
rather than analysing.
Based largely on class
notes. Refs generally
presented appropriately.
Limited use of sources,
with inconsistent or
inaccurate referencing.
Use of lecture notes or
personal opinion,
without evidence of
adequate reading.
Limited or no use of
footnotes or
bibliography.
Excellent standard of
work. Efficiently and
lucidly written. Standard
of written French is
excellent (precise
vocab, excellent
grammar, near-perfect
spelling). Careful
presentation, judicious
use of academic
conventions.
Good standard of written
French, with use of
appropriate lexis or
register. Generally well
presented, with very few
errors of syntax or style.
Moderately good
standard, with some
weakness in lexis and/or
grammar and
punctuation.
Needs to be improved in
most respects.
Insufficient command of
language, and/or
referencing.
Deficient in expression
and presentation.
