College Readiness Learning Targets
1. Use appropriate logic and rhetoric to analyze and effectively convey and critique ideas. A score of 5 on an analysis paper.

Write with a clear focus, coherent organization, and sufficient elaboration and detail. Implement the writing process successfully to plan, revise, and edit written work.
