Read the introductory paragraph of an essay about the Greek philosopher Socrates. Socrates was a great philosopher who taught several key ideas to his community. First, human wisdom begins with recognizing one’s own ignorance. Second, the unexamined life is not worth living. Third, the most important thing is ethical virtue. Fourth, a good human being cannot be harmed. What score should this paragraph receive?

    Score 1 because it provides no main point or does not support the main point with any ideas. Score 4 because it provides a main point, several ideas to support the main point, and explains each of the ideas. Score 3 because it provides a main point and several ideas to support the main point. Score 2 because it provides a main point and at least one idea to support the main point.

    It literally says in the first sentence "who taught several key ideas" and then proceeds to name them, but doesn't really explain any.
