Know the criteria for editing the essay

One of the great news of Enem last year was the two days of the test, with the writing on the first weekend.

According to Inep (National Institute of Educational Studies and Research AnĂ­sio Teixeira), the body responsible for the application of Enem, the change occurs because the wording “is important element of composition” of the final note.

Correction continues to be performed by two teachers, without one knowing the note given by the other, with the arithmetic mean of both to reach the final grade. The evaluation will be in accordance with the same five competences of the last year.

Zero and Human Rights

The Enem has increased the number of reasons why the student may have the score cleared. They begin to zero down the essay:

  • Signature, first name, surname or off-site rubric duly designated for participant’s signature

The last year’s Editorial Handbook (click here to download the PDF) also brings two long topics about it is considered “disrespect for human rights” – one of the reasons that can wipe out the essay.

“It can be said that certain ideas and actions will always be evaluated as contrary to human rights, such as: the defense of torture, mutilation, summary execution and any form of” justice with one’s own hands”, that is, without the intervention of institutions duly authorized (government, authorities, laws, for example),” the manual says.

In addition, the booklet cites “incitement to any type of violence motivated by race, ethnicity, gender, creed, physical condition, geographical or socioeconomic origin; explicitness of any form of hate speech (directed against specific social groups). “

Planning and originality

Another theme that the primer reinforces to the students is the originality of the text, encouraging the student to not only stay in the motivational texts. The socio-cultural repertoire is one of the criteria to reach the maximum score.

Planning the text is essential to achieve the goals of three of the five competencies. The official text suggests jotting down ideas and thinking about the relationship between them, to progressively construct reasoning, and to write with cohesion and coherence.
