Content quality of resources &well-founded argumentation: text shows knowledge, provides real(measurable) information; details go beyond the obvious or predictable; arguments are based on reliable resources found specifically for research; theories or statistical data presented insufficient information; details are more or less predictable; sometimes reliable but some of the argument is biased information is limited,repeated, no specific or original details; the author is just trying to sell an idea or opinion
Context wide context & core of the problem identified: problems understood in their inter-relationships, interlinked with similar themes, specific information fits into the whole picture; hidden causes of described phenomena are understood narrow context: problems not interrelated, random facts presented; specific information out of context
Practical relevance combines general, theoretical knowledge and global features with practical consequences and local context: shows concrete examples and has practical conclusions theoretical/practical knowledge and global/local perspective is not sufficiently balanced from either a purely global or the prevailing local perspective; examples from practice versus generalizations do not work; no practical relevance
Focus strong conclusions: values behind the topic are clear; main problem identified and discussed (analyzed); narrowing of topics -> channeled towards practical conclusions(at the end of the writing process) several topics with +- clear priorities; text is sometimes focused on minor problems and neglects importantones value orientation not certain; numerous topics with noclear priority; weak or totally impractical conclusions
Clarity logical structure of the text: ideas are clear, (every) paragraph declares a separate point; detail adds to the main idea, elements are in the right place ideas & focus of (every)paragraph need to be more specific; details need to be used in proper context(of other elements and main idea) ideas unclear, seem scrambled, jumbled, and disconnected; structure not logical; details do not fit with the main idea
