Does every paragraph address the subject matter of the thesis in some way? In other words, does the writer avoid introducing new material in the conclusion or switching subjects in the middle of a paragraph in the body? Have I written complete, grammatically correct sentences?
Have I explained my ideas clearly and explicitly? Is the sentence structure varied? If material was paraphrased, are the sources still mentioned?
Have I used direct and clear language? Do I need to read more? Do I make a clear argument or take a position about the topic? Are my paragraphs clearly connected and coherent?
Are there at least three sentences in the introduction?
