Usage and Mechanics Providing Feedback on Student Writing Learning from Professional Writers Writing in the 21st Century
When you assess or comment on student papers, what are the things that you look at? Do you concentrate on the logic of the ideas presented, the creativity with which they are presented, the structure of the writing, or a combination of many factors?

What do your students think about your methods? Have you seen their writing grow through your comments - or are they still making the same errors?

In this interactive, you will have a chance to look closely at the ways in which you assess student writing. To what do you pay the most attention? Are there other methods or emphases that you might incorporate into you evaluation repertoire? How do your standards compare with those of your peers?
