Master Thesis Evaluation Criteria

The purpose of an evaluation essay is to present an opinion or viewpoint on a subject or body of work. It should firstly provide a summary of the article in question, then using a thorough, well structured argument the writer presents a point-of-view supported with examples and evidence. By nature this essay bears many similarities to the persuasive essay, only is designed to display a more balanced argument

The first step in writing an evaluation essay is to provide a judgment asserted through a clear thesis. A good thesis statement determines exactly the focus of your essay and aids the reader in understanding what the essay is all about. Furthermore, it presents the point-of-view you are taking and hereafter each paragraph should work towards asserting this point-of-view to the reader. Consider the examples below, it is obvious which one provides the clearest definition of what the essay is about, and the argument it will present:

A: Abbey Road is an album by the Beatles.

B: Through the balance of classic song writing, experimentalism and the harnessing of musical technology, The Beatles created the masterpiece that is Abbey Road.

It is clear that B is the most successful in summarizing the subject matter evaluated in the essay, whilst also displaying the writer’s opinion and the stance the essay will take throughout the main body.

A thesis whichmeets the criteria for a pass, but has some weaknesses that are fairly readilycorrectable. Corrections might include adding some further material; rewritingseveral pages; some re-analysis or re-presentation of the data; or correctionof a large number of typographical or stylistic errors. (Theses with minimalpresentational errors can, at the Board of Examiners’ discretion, be awarded aPass.)
