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.
