Writing Self-Analysis

If you have not already done so, complete your readings under Academic Guides in the studies for this unit.

For this assignment, complete a self-evaluation of your professional writing skills, including the following:

Review the content, structure, and organization of the initial post you submitted in your first discussion (from the previous unit), and the responses you received from your fellow learners.

Evaluate your post, using the Writing Self-Evaluation Rubric, linked in the Resources.

In the rubric, review the different levels of achievement that are possible for each criterion. Place an “X” in the level of achievement you believe your discussion post has attained.

The very last column on the right provides space for you to leave notes about the criterion. Indicate the reason for your assessment of each criterion in the last column.

Once you have completed the rubric, be sure to save a copy of it to your computer for later comparison.

Submit the rubric along with a copy of the discussion post you assessed as Word document attachments in the assignment area.
