Marking Guide: LAW114 Jurisprudence Law assignment-Charles Sturt University Australia

The marking guide below is a general description of the kinds of features exhibited by papers that will attract marks in the set ranges. Papers need not exhibit every feature in order to achieve a mark in a particular range.

High Distinction (85% plus)

A High Distinction paper will:

  • Develop a well-reasoned and well-researched argument that explicitly targets the important issues and takes a position.
  • Fairly characterise and then critically address counter-argument.
  • Logically appeal to academic argument in support of the paper’s thesis, providing sufficient context and significant analysis.
  • Prioritise relevant materials and arguments, demonstrating a good structural balance.
  • Write in cogent, complete sentences, with impeccable spelling, grammar, and syntax; avoid passive voice, throat-clearing or redundant language, and nominalisations.

Distinction (75 – 84%)

A distinction paper will:

  • Present some of the characteristics of a High Distinction paper.

That means a distinction paper is likely to:

  • Show a strong grasp of the relevant issues and present a supported argument, but not adequately address counter-argument;
  • Be well-balanced in its approach, but occasionally uneven in weighting for different components, use of academic literature, or in quality of argument;
  • Be well-written – with strong grammar, spelling, and syntax – but instances of redundant language or cumbersome style.

Credit (65 – 74%)

A Credit paper will:

  • Identify relevant issues, and maintain an adequate focus on them.
  • Be well-structured, exhibiting a balance of ideas throughout the essay.
  • Exhibit a solid grasp of the materials and demonstrate some ability to engage with them critically.
  • Discuss academic literature, but with insufficient context and analysis of the arguments.
  • Move towards a solid argument.
  • Be adequately written, while showing errors in paragraph structure, grammar, spelling, or syntax.
  • Be adequately and appropriately referenced according to the AGLC.
  • Show features of a proper Introduction – identifying the thesis and structure – and Conclusion.

Pass (50 – 64%)

A Pass paper will:

  • Present some of the characteristics of a Credit paper

That means a Pass paper is likely to:

  • Contain a description of the relevant issues, but little academic literature.
  • Contain a loose structure, with uneven attention to different arguments.
  • Provide inadequate context for discussion, or else some errors of logical analysis.
  • Present some relevant perspectives, but not a solid, consistent argument.
  • Be poorly written, with common errors of paragraphing, grammar, syntax, or spelling.
  • Be inadequately referenced according to the AGLC.
  • Have a generic Introduction and/or Conclusion.

Fail (below 50%)

Papers which exhibit any of the following characteristics may be awarded a Fail grade:

  • the paper does not demonstrate an adequate grasp of the issues;
  • the paper does not demonstrate comprehension of the set materials;
  • the paper fails to address the essay topic meaningfully;
  • written expression is so poor that the student’s description, analysis, interpretation or evaluation of the literature is frequently unclear;
  • referencing and citation is so poor as to be meaningless with regard to providing adequate support for the description, analysis and argument;
  • the paper exhibits some evidence of plagiarism.
