This policy especially makes sense on exam problems, for which students are under time pressure and are more likely to make harmless algebraic mistakes.
Your paper should be clearly organized, proofread for grammar and spelling, and all scholarly ideas must be cited using the ASA style manual.
This was a lengthy and complex assignment worth a substantial portion of the course grade.
Here you can see the steps used to create two kinds of rubric: one for problems in a physics exam for a small, upper-division physics course, and another for an essay assignment in a large, lower-division sociology course.
In STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), assignments tend to be analytical and problem-based.

This sense is well captured by the holistic method.
A holistic rubric, closely based on a rubric by Bruce Birkett and Andrew Elby: The student has partially understood the problem.
The discovery of Compton scattering was important in the early development of Quantum Mechanics because it illustrates the quantum nature of light and cannot be correctly described using classical electromagnetism.
Desired Traits: Conceptual Elements Needed for the Solution Scale A note on analytic rubrics: If you decide you feel more comfortable grading with an analytic rubric, you can assign a point value to each concept.
