Keep a running list of frequently-used comments

noun_16723_cc

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┬ácomments.

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