Addresses the problem description and objectives but not all components. Alignment is difficult to discern. The problem is not in the correct format. Objectives are lacking measurement or may be ambiguous; The problem selection rationale is not addressed or minimally introduced with now supporting details. Expected changes before and after the evidence-based practice are listed. Displays a lack of comprehension but attempts to apply information. Develops partial initial reference list .There is weak, marginal coverage of subject matter with large gaps in presentation. Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register), sentence structure, and/or word choice are present.

Problem description and objectives are stated but may not be fully developed or aligned; The problem is in the PICOT format but not appropriately developed. Objectives are measurable but may be ambiguous; The problem selection rationale is present but the significance is unclear. Expected changes are briefly introduced. Exhibits comprehension of the material and clearly attempts to integrate and apply information. Develops an initial reference list. All subject matter is covered in minimal quantity and quality. Some mechanical errors or typos are present, but are not overly distracting to the reader. Correct sentence structure and audience-appropriate language are used.
Problem description and objectives are presented and tie together; Identifies the stakeholders/change agents, who or what organizations are concerned, may benefit from, or are affected by this proposal. The problem is in the PICOT format and developed appropriately. Objectives are measurable; The problem selection is justified using literature. Expected changes are outlined.

Problem description and objectives are presented in detail and align; Describes the stakeholders/change agents, who or what organizations are concerned, may benefit from, or are affected by this proposal. The problem is in the PICOT format and developed appropriately. Objectives are measurable; The problem selection is justified using literature and supportive examples, not just based on the most current evidence.
Expected changes before and after the evidence-based practice are integrated. Develops an initial reference list. Demonstrates clarity and specificity of comprehension and synthesizes all relevant information. Coverage extends beyond what is needed to support subject matter.
