Assignment Sheet Review

Our trained Howe Writing Center consultants can provide you with the student perspective on your assignment sheet. They will respond with comments regarding how your students might read and interpret your assignment, including answers to questions such as the following:

  • What is the assignment asking me to do?
  • Is the process for completing the assignment clear?
  • Do I know what I need to do to be successful on this assignment? (i.e., rubric or clear directions for assessment)
  • Are the due dates clear and easy to find?
  • Are there clear technical requirements? (i.e., font, length, citation format)
  • Is the assignment sheet logically organized?
  • Are there resources included? (i.e., articles, books, writing center)
  • Is there confusing language?
  • Does the tone appeal to the audience (students)?
  • Do I understand why I am doing this assignment? (learning outcomes)
