ENGL 1301 End of the Semester Self-Evaluation Form
Dr. Lisa Roy-Davis
About your grade:
Did you meet contract terms for a B? Why or Why not? (Check out the contract again.)
Here are the actual learning goals I had for you. Please give yourself a “plus,” a “minus,” or an “okay” for each item. Let your answer reflect yourself sense of yourself now—at the end of the semester. Do not answer merely yes or no, explain your answer. Give as many examples as you can from your work this semester.
Are you able to enjoy and use writing?
"Invention": are you able to find lots of ideas and words?
Thinking, perplexity: are you able to dig to real questions in your essays? To get to what really matters?—to push toward figuring something out--creating a movement of thinking?
Voice: can you make your writing sound comfortably like you--and get life and energy into your sentences?
Can you "show, not tell": find words that make people see what you see, and feel what you feel?
Can you do genuine revising: rethink or "re-see" what you've written and try out new ideas, new structures, new voices?—develop or explore further what you've already written?
Can you copy edit successfully and get rid of virtually all mistakes in grammar and mechanics?
Feedback: can you give good feedback to others--and perhaps more important—can you get them to give you the feedback you need?
How well did you come to understand the writing process and learning process?
How was your level of effort over the semester?
How much do you feel you improved over the semester?
