Responses from western students about teacher comments

Responses from Western students about teacher comments

Students were asked 5 questions regarding commenting on their essays. Responses were anonymous and taken from English 102 and the Writing Center


How do you respond to teacher comments on your essays

How do you respond to teacher comments on your essays?

  • It shows me they are reading it carefully.

  • They are there to improve your writing so I always ask for extra help understanding them.

  • I’m always offended at first, then I just look at the positive comments.

  • I’m anxious, want them but don’t.

  • When they are done in a positive, constructive way, they are more helpful.


What is most helpful about teacher comments

What is most helpful about teacher comments?

  • They help with the current paper, but also future papers.

  • Encouragement.

  • Very specific examples help most.

  • Pro-active, positive, direct comments are most helpful.

  • Content and not grammar.

  • Comment in full sentences, not fragments.


What is least helpful

What is least helpful?

  • Abbreviated remarks. Spell it out for me!

  • When they point out grammar errors.

  • When they circle things and don’t tell me why.

  • When teachers use a negative tone, it just makes me mad.

  • No explanations and no way to help you find the correct way.

  • Bad handwriting.


How do you feel about peer commenting

How do you feel about peer commenting?

  • Value teachers more.

  • Peers sometimes understand your point better than teachers.

  • Peers hold back and don’t want to tell you the truth.

  • Good students- good comments. Bad students- what’s the point?

  • It helps me because I get to see good and bad writing.


Does the color of ink matter to western students

Does the color of ink matter to Western students?

  • No black or pencil- hard to read.

  • RED! When positive comments are in red, they looks great!

  • Any color other than black.

  • I expect red ink. If it isn’t red, I’m disappointed.

  • Red helps me pay attention.

  • Red stands out more.

  • Vivid non-red colors would be a nice change!
