Well-planned and well-delivered. Includes title, introduction (if applicable), transitions and a concluding statement. Mechanics are very strong. There are no missing steps, and the directions pinpoint the exact task.
The instructions are effective, but parts could be clearer in mechanics and syntax. There are no missing steps and the directions deliver the appropriate task; however, the wording might be slightly ineffective in 1 area.
The instructions deliver the appropriate task, but the phrasing is unclear in multiple steps. Average mechanics and syntax. Or, at least 1 step missing: the user is forced to infer the writer’s plan.
There is a very scattered sense of organization. The instructions are out-or-order or extremely ill-worded. Meaning is lost from garbled sentence construction. The are multiple steps missing from the directions; the user cannot replicate the task as given.
Failure to complete the task
There may be no sense of organization and/or no sense of mechanics or syntax. Or, it is impossible to complete the task as steps are written — the user has to completely infer the writer’s plan. Or, too much may steps are missing to replicate any parts of the task.
The writing is not your own — i.e. plagiarized from a source.
