Grading Guidelines for Essay

The desire of the Committee for Integrity Enhancement is to stimulate students to think about good character.  We want them to comprehend what it really is, to recognize individuals who demonstrate it presently and historically, and to understand how it applies to everyday situations.  We want them to be able to explain how they can personally demonstrate integrity.
