If you thought grading SAT essays was easy, in part 3 of our report on the October 1, 2011 SAT, (part 1 is here and part 2 here) we’re asking you to grade an actual essay submitted on the October 1, 2011 SAT. This essay was written by me and was mostly done to test a theory and have some fun..
I wrote this essay to test what happens if you got a few (ok every fact) facts wrong during the essay. So in case you were wondering I’ll post the score the essay actually got after we get some votes in! So leave a comment below!
Here is the essay scoring guide followed by the essay itself, click on any image to enlarge it:
So what do you think? What grade would you give it? (Remember, you have to score for two people so a 7 would be a 3 from one reader and a 4 from the other).
