Rubric for Evaluating Executive Summaries




I will be looking at the following aspects when I grade your Executive Summaries:

  • Content. You should summarize the key points for all important sections.  The main conclusions should be included.  There should be no new information included—only what is included in the original book or report.  The final heading and paragraph(s) should provide your rationale for why the book should be read by top executives interested in improving their interpersonal communication competence at work.  Copying from external sources is strongly prohibited and will be severely penalized. (35%) 


  • Organization.  The summary should follow the main points of the book or report in the order in which they originally appear.  There should be subheadings so that the reader can clearly know how the book or report is divided. (35%)


  • Mechanics.  Appropriate headings should be used, and there should be no grammar or spelling error.  Summaries are written in block style (that means no indentation) and single-spaced with two spaces between paragraphs.  Your writing should be clear and consist of short, concise paragraphs.  Writing should be simple, avoiding jargon, acronyms, and technical terms.  The summary must not ramble. (30%)1-The guide is online and explanation.

    2- complete order of main key points.

    3-use black format.

    4-use hidings.

    5-Do not just pelt items need examples and that is in the book not from your opinion or googol.

    This 100-point assignment Executive Summary assumes that the reader will not read the entire report or book; therefore, you must take him/her through every part of the report or book.  Just summarizing the general purpose is an Abstract, not an Executive Summary!

    Write an Executive Summary of a book over 100 pages long chosen from the books listed in the attached file.  Further, you must write it so that it persuades top managers (VP or President/CEO) that they should read the book, because it will help improve or change some specific aspect of their competence at work.

    Summaries are single-spaced with double spaces between paragraphs.  You must use headings that distinguish the different parts of the book. Check out an example here.

    The summary should not ramble.  Be succinct and get to the point, the summary can only be 6 to 10 pages long.  Appropriate grammar, spelling, use of titles/headings, etc. will be expected.  A grading rubric is attached.
