How is the relationship between order and disorder, rationality and irrationality, figured in different representations of the modern city?
the word count for the essay includes quotations, footnotes, endnotes and parenthetical references, but it does not include the bibliography. You will not be penalised providing your assessment is within 10% of the word limit (whether over or under).
Assessment Marking Criteria
Written work should show evidence of the following:
comprehension of the central issue and the instructions. You should show that you know what the question is asking, and what the main points of the response are.
awareness of work in the field. You should indicate that you have knowledge of the general debates on the topic you have chosen.
awareness of theoretical and critical positions in relation to the topic. You should show that you are aware of theoretical debates, but in addition you should use theoretical ideas in conjunction with forms of critical analysis, rather than just describing the ideas of theorists.
assembly of relevant material. You should be aiming to gather together as much material that is relevant to your response as is possible within the limitations of the essay length. This means getting a good balance between primary and secondary sources, as well as showing your understanding of important debates and disagreements within the filed.
ability to reflect critically and analytically. You should take care to engage with the material you are using, steering clear of describing theories and over-use of paraphrase of critical material. You should always be analysing the texts and ideas or historical material, not simply reporting or surveying them.
a structured and coherent response. Your work should be clear and the argument strong and easy to follow. This does not mean simplistic or univocal, but organised in such a way that the argument is logical and pursued consistently throughout.
ability to communicate in good English. You should take care that your expression is clear and fluent. This includes attention to spelling, grammar and syntax, as well as the development of a good style of communication.
proper use of scholarly apparatus such as referencing and bibliography. This is a crucial aspect of the discipline and will be expected in all your work. Details on this are available in the PG Study Guide.
The grading of assessments, therefore, will be based on the following criteria:
the extent to which relevant theoretical, critical and historical material has been assimilated;
the extent to which relevant material has been used;
understanding of the theoretical and critical issues engaged by the essay;
breadth of knowledge;
depth of analysis;
evidence of critical and reflective thought;
degree of coherence in argumentation;
command of English and appropriate use of referencing and bibliography.
Work in the Distinction category is usually marked by an overall level of excellence in terms of the range of reading, quality of argumentation, analytical perceptiveness, and fluency of writing.
Work in this category should thus:
make excellent use of primary and secondary sources;
show excellent understanding of the topic and the question;
contain penetrating or original argument;
demonstrate a strong and critical command of knowledge in the field;
be fluent and well expressed;
demonstrate an advanced critical and theoretical facility;
demonstrate exemplary use of full scholarly apparatus.
Good to very good work
Work in the Merit category is usually very good overall but lacks the full thoroughness, sophistication or depth of understanding that might push it into the Distinction category. At the upper levels of this category there may be some elements that are of distinction quality.
Work in this category should thus:
cover the main issues in depth;
make very good use of primary and secondary sources;
show thorough understanding of the topic and the question;
show evidence of strong critical and analytical ability;
make sophisticated use of theoretical perspectives;
construct a well-structured and cohesive argument;
have full and accurate referencing.
Satisfactory to good work
Work in this category is usually good overall but may still be a little weak in organisation, or lack comprehensive range of reference, be unbalanced in use of sources, not contain adequate theoretical and critical application, have some weaknesses in use of English or be without full referencing and bibliography. An essay in this category, however, is still satisfactory work.
Work in this category should thus:
address the main issues;
make good use of primary and secondary sources;
show evidence of critical and analytical ability;
make use of theoretical perspectives;
express and pursue a good, structured argument;
be well written and employ referencing techniques properly.
Work in this category has not reached the required standard. This may be for several reasons and the seriousness of the weaknesses will be indicated by the percentage grade. If it is between 40-49% then the work may be made passable with suitable revision.
Reasons for failure might include:
the work does not properly address the question;
the work is written in poor English;
the work is poorly structured and organised;
the work is descriptive rather than analytical;
the work is digressive and loses sight of the question;
the work lacks direct reference to primary and/or secondary sources;
the work does not show evidence of grasp of theoretical material;
the work makes generalised assertions rather than expressing an argument;
the work is poorly referenced or has an inadequate bibliography.
