MUS 715   Analysis Grading RubricWilliam Wieland
I begin with 100 points and deduct points as follows:
Deductions
Submissions 25 pts for each missing submission, i.e. Proposal, First Draft, Second Draft and/or Final Draft
Punctuality 10 pts for each late submission, i.e. Proposal, First Draft, Second Draft and/or Final Draft
Proposal 5 pts for each missing item—Title, Composer, Instrumentation, Duration
If the score uses only 1 or 2 staves, I ask you to choose another piece without penalty. However, the first draft deadline remains unchanged.
If the composition is shorter than 5 minutes, I ask you to choose another piece without penalty. However, the first draft deadline remains unchanged.
First Draft 10 pts for each missing item—Score, Recording, 3 Graphics, 3–5 pages of analysis
I will return the first draft with suggestions for your graphics, analysis, grammar and spelling.
Second Draft 10 pts for each inaccurate or unclear Graphic
10 pts for unimproved Analysis
10 pts if I find several Grammatical or Spelling errors
I will return the second draft with final suggestions for your graphics, analysis and writing.
Final Draft 15 pts for each inaccurate or unclear Graphic
15 pts for unimproved Analysis
15 pts for unimproved Writing
Though it is possible to deduct more than 100 points, the lowest score I award is a zero.
