Feedback shortcuts for assessing writing

Here is a set of comments I use frequently when giving feedback to students. It's designed for EFL writers with an English level equivalent to IELTS 5.5 or above. The links are to sites I regularly use in teaching, and the recommended books are available in my university library. Feel free to adapt according to your students' level, needs and available resources. There are different ways you could exploit the comments set: 1. (on paper) as a cover sheet when returning written work. 2. (in Microsoft Word) as the basis for creating AutoText entries, which you can quickly insert into Comments when reviewing electronic copies of your students' work. 3. (in Turnitin) as the basis for creating a QuickMark set in GradeMark. I've appended the .qms file so if you're already a Grademark user you can download then import it into your own Quickmark library and modify as appropriate.

Writing to a word limit - content

Aimed at English as an Academic Language: This is an OU Live session file which has a short introductory discussion about word limits - why we have them and in what contexts - then a word about TMA word limits. The main task is based on 26 events from WW2 and asks students to prioritise them to make a shorter account. I chose the subject matter because it is widely known to one level or another and also raises a lot of questions about what should and should not be removed from a piece of writing. If you don't like the subject you would only have to replace one screen and re-jig the wording on another. If you do that, please post your version in LORO too - I'm a big fan or re-purposing :)
