    - Introduction

    A rather limited and unfocused introduction. The majority of the relevant issues are neither identified nor explained.

    - Understanding of key issues;

    Very problematic. Author recognises the existence of the concepts to which they refer, but the post on the whole is suggestive of a low level of knowledge and understanding.

    - Evidence of reading an/or choice of appropriate concepts;

    There is very little evidence of any wider-reading on the topic or familiarity with the relevant literature. No evidence of any research having been undertaken at all, in fact. Many important concepts and ideas not engaged with.

    - Analysis;

    Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the post. Assertion rather than argument. Claims made not substantiated. Mostly based on conjecture. Incorrect interpretation of empirical data/evidence. Inaccurate conclusion ultimately presented.

    - Presentation and evaluation of evidence; and

    Very anecdotal and colloquial. A rather unpleasant ad hominem tone used.

    - Structure, clarity, use of grammar and correct spelling

    Lack of structure and clarity. Inadequately referenced.

    Overall:

    In summary this is a very limited contribution to the forum. The author's prose demonstrates their awareness of the existence of the issues to which they refer, but there is little else to commend them upon. The issues touched upon are dealt with in a very cursory fashion. The post is not well-organised, and makes several unsubstantiated assertions (most of which are incorrect). In so doing, the post is suggestive of some worrying gaps in knowledge and understanding. The author should make more of an effort to familiarise themselves with the literature on the topic.

    You haven't been giving him scores. He needs to know whether he's still on track for a 2:2 or whether he's drifting into the third region.

    Hmmm. Probably a grade in the 40s. Unless I was feeling particularly uncharitable.

    First post a borderline pass, second one is surely below 40.

    Pretty borderline for sure.

    To get 30-39 it would have to be "Inadequate in most or all of the following: length, content, structure, organisation, expression, discussion, explanation, accuracy and relevance.". One would also expect to see "Serious problems with a number of aspects of the language used".

    To get drastically below 30 there would have to be "no serious effort", and it would have to be "acutely deficient" in all of the assessment criteria.

    To give Furball his due, he does try, so "no serious effort" would probably not be a fair reflection of things. As for acutely deficient in "all" aspects, his spelling and grammar are acceptable.

    Ok, so something a bit different this time. It appears that the assessments and feedback given so far have failed to filter down and made a meaningful difference to performance.

    However, as been widely documented in the learning/teaching/pedagogy literature, an assessment of work of one's peers can be very helpful for self-development. So to give Furball an example of what he could achieve with the right effort and dedication, we will consider the below post of Trundler as an example of good practice.

    Introduction

    Introduction clearly expressed. Context well-defined. Clear thesis statement. Clearly identifies all of the major relevant issues and most of the minor issues.

    Understanding of key issues

    Issues clearly understood and differentiated in terms of importance.

    Evidence of reading and/or choice of appropriate concepts

    Demonstrates a high level of knowledge and understanding, appropriate to the level necessary for effective forum contribution.

    Analysis

    All key and important issues are dealt with comprehensively and succinctly. Impressive.

    Presentation and evaluation of evidence

    Very good use of carefully selected evidence to support arguments made. Evidence is assessed and evaluated well. Clear signs of independent thought. Very well constructed argument that is difficult to dispute. Excellent communication skills shown. Material is well-organised. Virtually no errors.

    Spelling/grammar etc.
    Some colloquial expressions were used, but this was not enough to detract from an overall positive verdict. The prose was effective, clear, and succinct.

    Overall
    A very pleasing read. The reader is left with an impression that the author has developed a strong level of knowledge and understanding of the topic.

    The author effectively articulates the argument that the two posters referred to are wholly inadequate. This position is convincingly argued, and is supported by way of reference to the wider literature (e.g. Hegel). In so doing, the post shows evidence of wider reading and research. For this the author should be commended.

    On the whole I felt that a sophisticated level of understanding was being applied to an important issue. Impressive.
