Essay 3

Score: 3

In this adequate response, the writer focuses on her goal of winning an NCAA softball championship. Her paragraphs reflect an organizational plan, and she develops by explaining the steps she is taking to achieve the goal: playing on a team during the summer, working out and practicing daily, and keeping her grades up. The development is less effective when she simply asserts her confidence that she is up to the task. Word choice is appropriate, and control of sentence structure and Edited American English is generally steady.
