Volume 5, Issue 12• December 10, 2007

Augustana Center for Teaching and Learning

Dr. Michael Augsperger has developed a series of comments that he finds himself making often about students’ writing. In order to give students a fuller explanation of each problem than he could in the margin of an essay, he refers them to a comment rubric (25kb pdf). If a student sees a letter, a number, or a roman numeral circled on the left hand margin of their assignment, they check this sheet to read the explanation of the mark. If they see the letter, number, or numeral circled twice, it means that this is something that significantly limits the effectiveness of their writing, and so requires their particular attention as a writer. He has found that this rubric provides students with a more thorough explanation on ways to improve their writing.
