If it is the case you have allowed sufficient time for revision, it is a good idea to use this time both for working on your text and to take revision breaks. It is likely you will return to your work with a fresh mind-set if you are able to forget it for a couple of days. While the revision process is underway, leave your text to one side a couple of times at least e.g. once while the first phase of reorganization is in progress and again while you are attending to detail and polishing your work.
There are a few questions you should ask yourself for the purpose of evaluation. Use the answers as part of the revision process i.e. to reorganize the order with a view to:
What is it you want to say in your paper? Put another way, you should try to sum-up your central thesis statement or main point(s) as well as any supporting evidence you have chosen to support your thesis and various points. Imagine this is some other student’s paper. Is the thesis statement clear? Is it clear what this paper is about?
What is it you are attempting to achieve in this paper? For example, are you trying to analyse a piece of reading, evaluate it, argue it, trying to apply it to a different situation, or do you have another objective entirely?
Is your thesis properly supported by the body paragraphs of your work? Have you provided sufficient evidence to substantiate any claims you have made? If you have taken quotations from a text to use as evidence, have you accurately cited these?
Are all your ideas relevant to your thesis? Does anything seem out of place? If this is the case, you should either remove that part or alter your thesis to match a particular point.
Are all the main ideas in your paper sensible? Are any of the sentences or ideas confusing or unclear? Try reading your work aloud so that you can hear anything that is unclear or awkward. Remove any words that are vague, incorrect or surplus to requirements.
Can you spot any spelling, punctuation or grammar mistakes? Should you feel any part is wrong, mark it out, even if you are not sure how to improve it. Feel free to consult a tutor or a professional writer at PrimeEssay.org if you want advice on correcting errors.
Do your best to take a detached approach to what you have just written. Imagine, for instance, that you are evaluating the work of another person. What part of the paper is best and why? How can you improve this part even further? What part of the paper is the worst and why? What can you do to improve this part?
