Grading & Editing Information Grading Symbols

When reviewing your essays for grammatical concerns, look for patterns. If you see the same symbols repeatedly, then find out what the concern is and how to address it. The goal is to reduce patterns or clusters of concerns.

Try to prioritize your patterns. Sentence structure concerns are generally more serious than punctuation concerns. When you proofread, you can focus on the patterns you need to reduce.
