Example Student Feedback: Research Proposal

The following is a three-page document that I created when I was a teaching assistant in 2009. It was in response to submitted research proposals that were part of a larger culminating project for this second-year course in the Faculty of Environmental Studies. I was seeing a number of common errors across the proposals I was reading, so, in the hopes that a common set of feedback would help all students, I prepared this document.

Now looking at it, while I appreciate the spirit and pedagogical reasoning behind its creation, if I were to create a similar document today I would limit to one page, focusing on the feedback that would have the greatest impact if taken into account for future work.
