Can I watch you edit my draft? is another frequent question from psychology student clients. We use Zoom share screen, and the student gets to see the in-the-moment iterative process that occurs when I review a draft assignment.

It's messy ~:-)


I liken draft revision to 'moving furniture around', stuff is put everywhere for a short time, placed elsewhere and perhaps moved back by the end of the process. However, by engaging with the material in this way, together, the student and I are able to unpack, reorder, and sculpt their draft to a streamlined answer of the topic question.


My feedback on a draft assignment usually consists of saying things like, "Too wordy, rather reorder your sentence like this...." Or "This sentence contradicts the previous one". Also, "This is unclear, do you mean [a] or [b]".


Often I make suggestions as to where to put a citation or a statistic (e.g., a %), or where to put an example. As well, I provide question prompts to encourage the student to illustrate their critical thinking skills more explicitly.


I comment and move-some-things-about, in a similar way when I am reviewing a student's assignment draft via an emailed copy.
