1. Full error2 counted off if the concept of the word is missed.
2. Half error counted off if some aspect of the parsing of the word is missed. E.g., singular rather than plural.
3. The translation is to be in correct English form.
4. In the first three semesters of Greek study, a somewhat literal pattern of translation is to be followed with some freedom of re-sequencing of word order and smoothing effects. In the fourth semester specific translation methods will be specified for use, thus establishing grading criteria.
5. In the second semester the Kubo reader is the standard for determining accuracy of translation, allowing for appropriate synonyms of the English words given in Kubo.
6. In the third and fourth semesters the both the Lowe/Nida and the Gingrich/Danker lexicon are the standard for determining accuracy of translation, allowing for appropriate synonyms of the English words given in the lexicon.
1. Each parenthesis ( ) counts for a separate answer. With the verbals, the ( ) will count for two answers. E.g., - Infin (V: Time) - = 3 answers.
2. Abbreviated endings in the Lexical Form section count for separate answers.
3. Omission of article with nouns in the Lexical Form count for half an error.
4. Half error counted off in the Translation if some aspect of the parsing of the word is missed. E.g., singular rather than plural.
5. Missed accents/breathing marks in the Lexical Form count off one quarter error.
1. Abbreviated feminine and neuter endings to pronouns and adjectives and verb forms can be used so long as no shift in the position or type of accent mark found in the nominative masculine singular form takes place. If a change occurs then the full form of the word must be written.
2. Missed accents/breathing marks count off one quarter error.
1It is very important that the number of errors be tabulated for each page and recorded in the appropriate slot at the bottom of each page, then recorded in the appropriate section of the Grade Calculation section at the end of the exam. Also crucial is the completion of the Grade Calculation section.
error does not equal one point. The value of each error is determined
in the Grade Calculation section at the back of the exam.
