Describe theory starting with short bio of theorist along with major influences. Describe concepts and propositions of the theory. Provide an example from the literature as to how theory has been applied.
Apply theory to practice problem demonstrating links to elements of the problem and theory. Describe how practice would change by incorporating the theory.
It should be clear to reader that this is an appropriate theory for the problem. Application to the problem is poorly presented. The theory is not addressed.
Reveals inaccurate comprehension of material and lacks the ability to apply information. Subject matter is absent inappropriate and/or irrelevant. Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede communication of meaning. Inappropriate word choice and/or sentence construction are used.
Superficially applies the theory and lacks understanding of the theory in relation to the problem.
Displays a lack of comprehension but attempts to apply information. There is weak marginal coverage of subject matter with large gaps in presentation. Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) sentence structure and/or word choice are present.
There is surface-level application of the theory to the problem. Uses basic understanding of the theory. Exhibits comprehension of the material and clearly attempts to integrate and apply information. All subject matter is covered in minimal quantity and quality. Some mechanical errors or typos are present but are not overly distracting to the reader. Correct sentence structure and audience-appropriate language are used.
Application is direct competent and appropriate for the theory. Claims and ideas of the theory are supported. Uses knowledge of the theory.
Demonstrates integrative and accurate comprehension and applies information as appropriate. There is comprehensive coverage of subject matter. Prose is largely free of mechanical errors although a few may be present. A variety of sentence structures and effective figures of speech are used. Thoughtfully applies and evaluates major points of the theory in relation to the problem. Application demonstrates a deep understanding of the theory.
Demonstrates clarity and specificity of comprehension and synthesizes all relevant information. Coverage extends beyond what is needed to support subject matter.
Writer is clearly in command of standard written academic English.
