Assignment Feedback 


Are you curious about how students read your assignments? Are you concerned they may misinterpret something? Do you think you left something out?


Through our tutorials, we become familiar with a wide range of writing assignments. We also have lots of experience in helping students determine exactly what a particular assignment is asking them to do. Because of this, the Writing & Speaking Center tutors are happy to read over assignment sheets and syllabi and provide feedback to instructors regarding the clarity, accessibility, and completeness of their materials.

If you're wondering how a particular document (assignment, handout, syllabus, etc.) may be received by your students and would like some feedback, please email it to Mandy Taylor at apheatwole@smcm.edu. The peer tutors will take a look, and we should be able to provide you with some feedback within a week.
