How to assess your own work

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After you try one of the sample writing questions, ask yourself a few simple questions about your work:

 

Task Achievement/Response

 

·       TASK 1: HAVE I DONE WHAT THE QUESTION ASKED ME TO DO?

·       TASK 2: DID I ANSWER THE QUESTION?

·       Have I given a clear overview?

·       TASK 1: Have I given data to support my points?

·       TASK 2: Have I given examples to support my points?

·       Have I presented some good ideas and points of view which are relevant to the task?

·       Is the information clear?

·       Is my information well organised?

·       Are my points of view clear?

·       Is my text communicating its content effectively to the reader?

 

Coherence and Cohesion

 

·       Is the text well organised?

·       Are my points in a logical order?

·       Have I used paragraphs effectively? Does each paragraph have a clear theme? (To practice this try summarising each paragraph in a sentence)

·       Are my sentences linked by appropriate joining words (e.g. Consequently, After that, However, Therefore, Moreover, Thereby, As such, In conclusion, Additionally)?

·       Are the sentences in my text well connected?

·       Have I used substitution and referencing accurately?

 

Grammer Range and Accuracy

 

·       Have I written accurate grammatical sentences?

·       Have I used accurate and varied sentence constructions, not just simple sentences?

·       Is my grammar varied? Have I used similar sentence structures throughout? (This particularly important in Task 1, where you less room to show your range)

·       Have I tried to show I can use sentences with more than one clause? Conditional clauses? Presnt, past and future tenses accurately?

 

Lexical Resource

 

·       Have I used a good range of appropriate vocabulary?

·       Is my spelling accurate?

·       Is my text clear?

·       I did use certain vocabulary too much when I could use different words?
