One of the things I do as an online instructor is offer my students evaluation comments at the end of each module.  This infographic captures the basic guidelines I follow when writing assessment comments. 


Special thanks go to the very talented Renee Williams, a recent graduate of or E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate Program for writing the text for this infographic.
