how to write evaluation

What are you being asked to evaluate??
04 April 2011
I presume that you thinking about personal evaluation. There are many techniques for doing this: 360 degree feedback, psychological tests etc. Think about what you want to achieve. Presumably you want t help an individual get better at what they do. There are generally two aspects to this: attitude and skills. Helping people to improve their skills is relatively straightforward if you have objective benchmarks for what they are trying to achieve. If you want to get better at playing the guitar, you have music exams, for example, or you can aim to be the next Eric Clapton. Traditionally, attitude is more difficult and rooted in psychology. There are many different facets to this and you think of a few just looking around you in the classroom. The most important step is the first and that is to be honest about the current situation. Most people don't like to upset others or accept criticism. If both parties can agree on a common definition of the 'truth', you are halfway there. Next you have to decide what a good attitude looks like and finally, you have to agree specifics on how you get from where you are today to where you both want to be.

I like the GROW model: 1. what's the Goal? 2 what's Reality? 3. what are the Options? 4. Wrap up

I tend to ask the key questions: what (is the problem), why (is it happening), how (did it occur) and when (did it happen). This can provide an analytical framework for thinking about the question.

How to write broadsheet articles

How do you go about writing a Broadsheet article?

A broadsheet article reports the facts and details of an event, without an author's opinion (as would be the case in a tabloid newspaper). In general, they are unbiased but this is often not the case in real newsprint. The idea is for the reader to form their own opinion based on the given information Before you start writing you need to think who your audience is and who the article is aimed at, use the who, what, where, when, why and how format in your opening then concentrate on the important information in the main section of the article The article should be written in complete sentences, using formal language, and be broken up in to sections to help the reader navigate the article. The article would usually be about something serious and newsworthy, including current affairs, rather than commenting on popular media and celebrities. Don’t forget to add a title, date, and author’s name to the article. The title should also be formal and to the point, avoiding puns or jokey headlines as in tabloids. The first thing when writing a newspaper article is to find some event worth reporting on. A newspaper article, as others have said, reports the facts and details of an event.  As you might expect, there is no rising action, falling action or climax – this is not a story, this is the fact. Begin with the most important, critical points of the article. For example, Yesterday night around 11 pm, a man, George Bluth, 41 was shot in front of Parker Square Mall.  Police responding to the scene of the shooting cordoned off a small area near the doors of the mall, and did not respond to questions. Mr. Bluth was taken to the St. Catherine’s Memorial Hospital, and is currently in stable condition. According to Mrs. Bluth, George was walking home from a night with friends, and the police say that he was attacked by several youths…You should progress through the story, and each paragraph should contain less important facts than the paragraph before. As many others have said, you should use formal language as I have above.  Instead of “I asked the police…”, you should write “police reported that…” and so on.

Below is the structure and features of a broadsheet article:


Emphasis on important global/national news, political, economic, social and cultural issues. Covers politics, finance, and current affairs. Often has a sports supplement.


Few photographs, A2 size, black/white. Frontpage should be more informative, about public issues. The design emphasizes content through detailed articles in small print, with some emphasis on photographs and restrained use of color.  


It should be informative, factual, serious language, black/white.  


Formal language, highly researched, factual details, neutral and unbiased, small print. Varied types of sentences. Emphasis on the information.
