By Jim Burke. Award-winning educator Jim Burke explains a variety of assessment techniques to help students improve their writing. Writing assessment refers not only to evaluating a student's final paper and assigning it a grade, but also to measuring a student's knowledge of the elements of writing we have taught him. Assessment is a crucial part of the instructional process and of a student's growth as a writer, but it also demands much of the teacher.

Virginia has been a university English instructor for over 20 years. She specializes in helping people write essays faster and easier. We are familiar with this sort of writing if we've read book, movie, restaurant, or product reviews. Evaluation papers can be serious or funny, earnest or sarcastic.
Tati Lago, 22, Dyersburg, Tennessee. Im a student who got stuck with too little time and too much headaches in my personal and student life. I had no choice but to use an example research service during my 2-month breakdown at school. It was interesting and scary to find out there were so many dishonest writing services out there, most of them claim to be located in countries where English is spoken, but in fact they are not.I even had a chance to exchange email with one of the best research writers on EssayScam.org writing forum who sometimes posts on the forum. She gave me writing tips and advice for free, even though I only asked her if she was familiar with two services that looked legitimate (Custom Papers and Graduate Writer). Overall, I like the design of the site, it is simple and easy to navigate. I hope the best posters continue contributing to the site to help other students avoid unreliable essay writing services.Btw. dont get discouraged by harsh language of some posters, at first some of them seem unfriendly, but when you investigate their claims on your own you will notice they tell the truth. Only the marketers and spammers use nice language, but they are dishonest, the truth is harsh in this business, apparently.

If you have an assignment to write an essay assessing the effectiveness or quality of something, it helps to have an evaluation essay example to inspire you. The key is that your opinion must be based on reason and free of bias. This evaluation essay example focuses on reviewing a college course.
You're probably used to having your writing evaluated by teachers. Such evaluations can be quite helpful, but they're no substitute for a thoughtful self-evaluation. As the writer, you can evaluate the whole process of composing a paper, from coming up with a topic to revising and editing drafts.
