In your analysis, you can look at one or multiple writing conventions used specifically in your discipline. For instance, you can look at organizational patterns (How is the paper organized? What information does the Introduction, Body, and conclusion have? Is there flow and good transition between ideas and paragraphs?); rhetorical devises (Is the author using rhetorical devices like metaphor, anaphora, oxymoron etc.?); type of support/evidence used; fallacies; tones, and so on.
In your thesis statement and conclusion, you must summarize whether you consider the article well-written or requiring more work based on your analysis of the writing conventions.
Try to go as in-depth in your analysis as possible, giving support for your claims.
