About McKitterick

I refer to these measures when scoring your projects. So use this checklist when revising before you turn it in! For even more information about how I grade your work and to get better at critiquing it yourself, click here to see a scoring sheet. (If you're not familiar with these measures, click here to see the handout with descriptions of each measure.)
