The following three essays provide you with samples of my grading techniques.
This first sample essay is a report on Augustus Caesar written by a fifth grade student for whom I’ve been grading essays via e-mail. This is the level of commentary and input that may be expected by those who use my online grading service. Used with permission.
The second essay, a literary analysis of the short story “The Most Dangerous Game,” is by an 11th grade student in my Intermediate Writing Class at Heritage Christian School. The commentary is a bit less than online graded works will receive as much feedback was given orally to the class. Used with permission.
The third sample essay, a comparison/contrast essay of two characters in The Scarlet Pimpernel, was written by an 11th grade student with some learning challenges whom I tutored personally. He just received a very high “A” in his first college writing course! Because this student was tutored by me, the level of commentary is a bit less than online grading would generate as I addressed some of his issues orally during the tutoring session.
