  • 25 points will be deducted from the final draft grade IF all rough draft corrections are not made.
  • Essays submitted without a Works Cited page as the last page of the essay will receive grades of 0.


1. Check your essay to be sure that you have correctly used MLA Format in terms of margins, font, spacing, heading, page numbers, etc. Refer to the MLA handout in the 1st Module BEFORE you check your essay for this. 

2. Run spell check and make any necessary corrections and save your work. 

3. Print your essay.
