### 1a. Describes, Calculates, and Compares the Present Values (PVs) of the Two Alternatives

Total: 1.00

Distinguished – Provides a thorough description, accurate calculations, and a relevant comparison of the present values (PVs) of the two alternatives.

Proficient – Provides a description, mostly accurate calculations, and an adequate comparison of the present values (PVs) of the two alternatives, but minor details are missing.

Basic – Provides a partial description, mostly inaccurate calculations, and a vague comparison of the present values (PVs) of the two alternatives. Relevant details are missing.

Below Expectations – Attempts to provide a description, calculations, and comparison of the present values (PVs) of the two alternatives; however, the description and comparison are missing significant details and the calculations are inaccurate.

Non-Performance – The description, calculation, and comparison of the present values (PVs) of the two alternatives are either nonexistent or lack the components described in the assignment instructions.
