B range: Your RRPs are thoughtful, responsive to the text, make solid but not necessarily original
points, and show evidence of average effort with writing mechanics.
C and under range: Your RRPs are too short, show little depth of familiarity with the assigned
reading, are carelessly written, and/or lack strong writing mechanics.

F: Well. You either did not do the assignment, or did so little or worked so carelessly that no
credit is warranted. Sigh. You may be a wonderful, lovely person…you just did not do the work.
