This criterion is linked to a learning outcome Strong Reasons
threshold: 4.0 pts
4 Pts
Exceeds Standards: Provides strong, distinct reasons that support the writer’s opinion and develop the argument, e.g., the meaning is connected directly to the perspective and the reasons are clearly different from each other.) Feelings or personal peferences may be present but don’t stand alone.
3 Pts
Meets Standards: Provides reasons that support the writer’s opinion and develop the argument--may not be thoroughly connected to the perspective or may be overlapping. Feelings or personal peferences may be present but don’t stand alone.
2 Pts
Almost Meets Standards: Few reasons are evident; there needs to be more support and development of the writer’s argument--reasons are weakly connected to the perspective, largely overlap and/or rely solely on feelings and personal preferences.
1 Pts
Not Yet: No or only a vague reasons are provided but there needs to be more support and development of the reader’s argument.
