What is "Graded Writing Sample"

edited January 7 in Prep School Admissions
I submitted every single thing with GRADED WRITING SAMPLE on "Phillips Exeter And Deerfield Academy's" application.
I really don't know what is GRADED WRITING SAMPLE. Can anyone please help me?

Recently, My English's sir said us to write a composition. After one day, he gave us our answer sheets back. I got 10 out of 10 on it. But, there were no comments. He only gave me the remark.
Can I submit that paper as a GRADED WRITING SAMPLE?

Please help me!

    If it's a written assignment and it has a grade on it, it's a "GRADED WRITING SAMPLE."

    Hand Written? I don't have anything!

    There was a graded writing sample for Exeter? Why is it not coming up on my Gateway account, am I missing something?

    @keystosuccess unless they have changed their requirements there was no graded writing sample for the PEA application

    Many schools want a graded writing sample @ Gateway & SAO. However, one request was visible on hard copy and print preview but not easily seen on Gateway portal. We are trying to figure out how to upload a sample because kiddo’s school is all e-filed with grades and remarks all sent electronically via a portal. The comments are on a different e-form with grades on a school portal- no traditional “red ink”comments. One school said they want grade on the paper (:|

    @Golfgr8 that's what my father is also saying.
    I have no hand written "Graded" paper!

    @keystosuccess sorry. It's PAA :)

    it is a paper that has been marked up. As I recall Andover did not want just a letter grade.
  • Golfgr8Golfgr8 Registered User Posts: 506 Member
    We took a screen shot of the grade and another screen shot of comment. We have a pdf of paper. Does anyone else use the electronic portals like “ turnitin”? It’s hard to figure out how to do this. The assignments are on a portal that does not allow sharing. We asked one AO about this and he didn’t seem to know about the difficulties with electronic grading.

    @Golfgr8 I seem to remember there was a print function with turnitin. And there may be a history tab? I cant recall. If you go to print you can change the print to save as PDF...

    @Center - People don’t want to use some e-graded portals because they use a computer based program that will claim that almost everything in quotations is plagiarized :-O
  • khanshahebkhanshaheb Registered User Posts: 123 Junior Member
    What that means?
    Can I submita non-written paper?
  • CenterCenter Registered User Posts: 1,835 Senior Member
    oh right--that horror is coming back to me! LOL. My kid had a portal where the teachers posted comments--cant recall if it was turnitin. How about bringing the paper to school and asking the teacher to write a short letter or note and sign and attach it??

    @khanshaheb, the paper doesn't have to be handwritten.
  • khanshahebkhanshaheb Registered User Posts: 123 Junior Member
    @GoatMama are you sure?
