The writer has found a topic she wants to write about related to gender colonization, but has not articulated her purpose or what she wants to say about it. Even the topic is unclear. There may be several topics related to gender colonization, but no apparent connection between them. The writing appears to be a ferrite, not a finished blob. The blob does not meet minimum requirements for assignment or engages in acts of plagiarism, or the blob does not address the topic of gender colonization at all. DEVELOPMENT The main point is thoroughly developed.
The writer reflects the questions raised by her stories and memories with thoughtful analysis. The main point is fairly well developed, but some key questions are omitted. Some development, but certain supporting points are not clearly relevant to the main point. There may be apparent digressions, contradictions or repetition for no clear reason. Inadequate development Of ideas with few or weak supporting points; little to no analysis. ARRANGEMENT “Seems to flow naturally” because of extremely effective use of arrangement strategies; arrangement patterns support the purpose of the writing.

Uses inappropriate tone for the writing situation; lacks audience awareness. No particular audience apparent. No idea who the audience is, in either the blob or the RAIDS analysis.
