Create polls when you submit your essay

by beatthegmat » Thu Feb 07, 2008 11:24 pm
Writing critiques of AWA essays can be a huge pain--it can be just plain tedious and as a result folks in this community aren't getting as much feedback as they should on their essays.

One suggestion to make it easier for folks to receive feedback on their essays is to set up a poll with each post, like the one you see at the top of this post.

Creating polls is easy. When you write your post, before hitting 'Submit', scroll down the page and set up your polling options like the following:

It's a lot easier to rate an essay with one click then to rate by replying to a post!

My apologies -- I couldn't create the poll, but i submitted two essays.

Please can someone review them? I have my exam in two weeks and I have just started on AWA part. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Hi Eric,

Do we have any moderator or an expert for AWA section?
You can see many members have submitted essays , but they are not getting any feedback.
I think getting feedback on AWA section is the most important.
For verbal and quant huge material and guidance is available.
But the AWA section, where we need the most support, we are not getting any.

Pleas help.I have exam in a week's time and not able to know where do I stand. :(

Thanks !!!

In addition to creating polls, students should also stick to the official essay prompts.
