Comments on Essays: Do Students Understand What Tutors Write?
Chanock, Kate
Teaching in Higher Education, v5 n1 p95-105 Jan 2000
Compared students' (n=101) interpretations of tutors' written comments on essays with the tutors' intent in three humanities classes at an Australian university. Found almost half the students did not interpret the comments in the way their tutors intended. Concludes that grading comments need to be carefully explained, with discipline-based examples. (DB)
