Keep a running list of frequently-used comments


If you grade papers using Google Docs, keep a document of your most frequently-used comments open as you grade. You can cut and paste comments as you need them. Or you can do as I did – I shared this list of common writing errors with my students, and then referred to them by number in the comments.

If you’d like to look at your document with the paper you’re grading side by side, use a split screen extension.
