This page includes a standard error correction symbol code. Use these symbols to highlight key mistakes in a student’s work.
This is a 3-way system.
1) Tutor marks the mistakes using the correction code + return to student.
2) Student makes coreection in a different colour pen and returns to tutor.
3) Tutor checks corrections and corrects if the changes are incorrect – give back to students.
Reason: This way the student learns from their mistakes and takes morer responsibility in correcting errors and learning from mistakes.
Teachers: This code can be used to correct student’s work. Underline the mistake and use one of the symbols to indicate problem. Students correct the mistake using the code and return to teacher to check.
