Advanced. This writer has a clear sense of delivery of the message in response to the assignment. Although the paper is relatively short, it is well developed and clearly focused. The writer's use of expressions, such as "...his hands grabbed upon empty air, as did his feet," "blazed his way to glory," "some heroes are quiet heroes; others become famous for it" illustrates a grasp of sophisticated stylistic devices. Variation in sentence structure, use of specific example, and mastery of language conventions combine to demonstrate advanced ability to communicate in writing.
