Drafts submitted that do not meet the minimum number of body pages will earn a reduced percentage. For example, if the submitted paper only has three pages, then only 60% of the paper has been submitted. If the earned score is 72%, the score will be reduced to 60% of that score. Thus, 72 x .60 = 43. Please avoid this drop in score. Submit all pages. This benefits you because your instructor can offer more substantial feedback.
