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 and returns to the student.
2) Student makes correction in a different colour pen and returns to the tutor.
3) Tutor checks the corrections and returns to the student.
Reason: This way the student learns from their mistakes and takes more 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 the error. Students correct the mistake using the code and return to the teacher to check.
