Your seminar essay should be comprehensible for students similar to yourself (before you started working in the topic).
When evaluating a seminar essay, we mostly ask ourselves the following questions:
- Is what is written in the essay correct?
- Do you demonstrate a good understanding of the topic in your essay?
Note that just paraphrasing the paper does not demonstrate understanding. You need to be able to explain the content in your own words. A concise and comprehensible explanation is a good demonstration of understanding.
While not our main focus, an excessive amount of typos, grammar errors, bad citations, etc. in the essay can negatively affect its evaluation.
