When writing a college paper for my class you may either write it up in essay form or simply answer the questions, but you must be thorough in your writing. You should use spell check. You should proof read. You should answer each question as clearly and as descriptively as you can. Here is an example of poor writing that will get zero points:

Why is this poor? because it’s too quick. It’s weak. it’s obvious and it looks like you’re writing this 5 minutes before it’s due.
