Description

I propose that tutors should use multiple colored pens or markers to annotate student papers according to various categories. For example, structural issues could be marked in green, grammatical issues in blue, and issues dealing with argumentation in red. This would allow the writing tutor to then easily refer back to specific colors when communicating with the student and cover each category one at a time, starting with global issues and then saving things like grammar and style for last. This can also be done with electronic submissions, as the comment system in Microsoft Word allows one to make comments different colors. This system will allow tutors to better keep track of the issues that need to be addressed with the student, while also providing a more structured method for reviewing this issues once the paper has been read.
