Did I utilize all required class materials? If I was still not confident about the subject, did I use any supplementary materials provided?
 Did I actually clearly address all questions asked in the prompt?
 Did I understand the purpose of the writing assignment and write something insightful and interesting in response? Would I want to read my own work?
 Does my paper flow in a logical and organized manner?
 Did I appropriately cite (in-text) class resources in my response?
 If I used outside sources: were they appropriate academic sources, and did I appropriately cite them (both in-text and works cited)?

 Check for consistency. For example, am I using the same tense (present / past) throughout?

 Did I put my name, and any other required heading information, on this assignment
