					  Job Ad & Resume Analysis grading
There are two grades written down
      The CIRCLED AND CROSSED OUT LETTER grade is what
       it’d likely get if this were the middle of the semester
      The UNDERLINED NUMBER grade is what I actually
       recorded for this first assignment

Don’t be too smug if you again got a “100” grade
      EVERYone who followed the explicit assignment directions
       and edited for BASIC typos got a “100”
      Focus on the circled and crossed out letter grade to see how
       far your editing (for grammar, clarity, style, paragraph
       organization, layout & design choices, etc) and understanding
       of implicit assignment goals will need to improve to get the
       results you want

If the underlined grade is less than “100”
       You didn’t precisely follow the bold red header directions
       You didn’t follow some other explicit assignment directions
       You had spelling or other really obvious typos (try reading
        your memos OUT LOUD for a final edit next time)

If the underlined grade is far less than “100”
       You didn’t follow some VERY basic assignment directions
        (for example, the assignment wasn’t complete)
       It is a VERY good idea to talk with me about the directions
        for future assignments before they are due
                   COMMENTS will hopefully
                 help you edit more effectively
Whatever grade you received:
       Look at the grammar, style, and other close editing comments
       USE this feedback to more effectively edit future assignments

What the editing shorthand means
      vague = uninformative, doesn’t respond to assignment directions
      sp / typo / edit = glaring editing mistake (spelling, typo, mangled gr)
      gr = grammatically incorrect sentence or phrase
      unc = grammatically unclear sentence or phrase
      awk = awkward sentence or phrase (could be stated much more simply)
      wd = wordy sentence (could be stated much more efficiently)
      pass = passive voice for no clearly useful reason

                 I will talk about all of these things in future classes.
      In general, practice using correct PLAIN EVERYDAY wording.
