Essay Grading Scale and Tips Mabie

AP English

  • AP means "analyze prompt" AND "attack prompt."  In other words, determine your task and stay focused on what the prompt asks you to do.

  • The AP Lit Timed Writing Essays assess your ability to write a persuasive argument, analysis or synthesis in response to a specific prompt.  This writing is expected to present a well-reasoned argument for interpretation and to support that argument with sophisticated, insightful analysis.  The analysis is expected to include well-developed inferences of specific details from the text.

  • Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the AP Rubric and understand the criteria that correspond with the numerical scores, ranging from 9 (the highest) to 0 (the lowest).  Students are expected to carefully review these criteria when their scored essays are returned to them.
