Evaluation Guidelines

Before you score your assigned submissions, you may want to read several works to get "a feel" for the process and the quality of work. Consider identifying some strong and weak works to establish your range before rating the works that fall in the middle.

As you review, you will have the following questions or choices to help you rate the work and communicate your recommendations to the Managing Editor.


Abstain from Review

If you have a potential conflict of interest, please abstain from the work. You will not be able to use any other portion of the rubric.

Additional Comments

Only the Managing Editor will see this section.
Please use this space to

  • Explain reasons for disqualifying the submission (length, hate speech, potential plagiarism, etc.)
  • Note works that include identifying elements such as submitter name or institution
  • Recommend that a submission be reevaluated because, for example, the work had a technical glitch that caused a portion of the text to go missing but clearly exhibits its worthiness for presentation
  • Comment on length
  • Provide the Managing Editor with feedback, suggestions, or insight.

The Managing Editor will read these comments and may summarize them as feedback for the student author.
