Let me teach you how to grade your own AWA essay

First, Check for structure
Structure should be
Para 1 Paraphrase
Para 2 Flaw 1
Para 3 FLaw 2
Para 4 FLAW 3
Para 5 Summarise and suggest possible solutions

Give yourself a 6 if you got that right

Secondly,
Check for Transition keywords, proper context and Use of proper starters on each paragraph
Deduct 1 point if all of those are missing
Deduct 0.5 if if one of those is missing

Thirdly,
Check for spelling errors
If any deduct 0.5 points
If you got more than 10 may be you want to rethink about... well... its not my job to tell you that

Next, Check for grammar
If the rules of Sentence correction are followed well, the structure is grammatically correct.
If grammar errors persist deduct one point

Lastly, check for Clarity of thoughts
If thoughts seem to be unclear to a 10 year old, deduct 0.5

Bonus
Check for no. of words
If >500 good
if not, deduct 0.5

Based on my analysis, almost all the students in my sample size have got about 4.5 in each essay, just by following structure and writing clear, short and grammatically correct sentences
You can get a 5 if the number of words is good enough and the points raised have some strong grounds
If you get a 6, you got all the qualities
