IELTS Writing Task 2 Teacher Feedback Form

(TESOL Worksheets--IELTS Writings Task 2)

Google: drivedocspub

This is the third step in process writing for IELTS Writing Task 2.  (Following the Self-Editing Checklist, and the Peer-Editing Checklist).

In addition to the checklist, this is supplemented by me going through the actual essay with a red pen.  At this stage in the process, I do not make explicit corrections or error code. I only use 3 kinds of marks.  I underline ____________ if there is something that needs to be fixed.  I put in a caret symbol (^) if something is missing.  And I write in question marks (??) if anything is unclear.

More detailed feedback is provided on the next draft.  (This follows the process I outlined in a previous post.)

Student name: ___________________________

Needs to be fixed
Is your essay divided into clear paragraphs (with line breaks in between the paragraphs)?

Do you have an introduction?

Do you have a conclusion?

Do you have between two or three body paragraphs?

Introduction Paragraph Structure:

Needs to be fixed
Is the first sentence a general statement about the topic?

Following the general statement, do you transition to the specific question?

Does the final sentence of your introduction contain the main idea of your essay?

Body Paragraph Structure:
Needs to be fixed
Does each body paragraph start with a clear topic sentence, which give the main idea of the paragraph?

Does every other sentence in the paragraph relate to the main idea in the topic sentence?

Did you introduce your own opinion in the conclusion?

Agree and Disagree: One Sided

Other types of essays
Did you restate your opinions from the previous paragraphs in the conclusion using different words?

For all essay types:
Did you remember not to include any new information in your conclusion?


Needs to be fixed
Did you correctly choose the active or passive verb for each sentence?

In passive verbs, did you remember to use the “be +V3” form?

If the verb is not in the passive or continuous tense, you do not need to use a "be" verb.  Check to make sure there are no extra “be” verbs in your essay.

Parts of speech

Needs to be fixed
Go through the paper and make sure all the words are being correctly used as the appropriate part of speech.

Good job
Too short (You must write at least 250 words, or you will lose points)
Too long (You won’t lose any points if your essay is too long, but in the exam you will lose valuable time.)

Error coding:
At this stage, you will get only 3 types of error coding.  You will get more detailed feedback on your next draft.
On your essay, the teacher will make the following marks:

______________ Underlining.  If you see something underlined, it means that there is a problem.  At this stage, it is up to you to try to find out what the problem is.
???? Question marks.  Question marks means that the teacher does not understand what you mean.

^ : This mark means you have something missing from your sentence.  It could be one word, or several words.
