Using Feedback to Build a Revision Plan

Good writing comes from effectively revising your work to meet the expectations of the assignment and the audience. Learning to receive feedback—emotionally wok through it and then wrestle through whether and how to take the suggestions—is key to becoming a better writer.

If you’re looking for the specifics of how to use revision features, the Eli student user guide for full details. Watch the video below for a how-to, and keep reading for some best practice recommendations.

Revision Plan Best Practices

The Revision Plan is a crucial feature in Eli. Having a plan for what criteria to focus on will help you save time and energy when you actually start to change your draft.

Your instructor may ask you to create a revision plan as part of a revision task, or you can still make one even if it’s not required.

Some things you can keep in mind about what makes a good revision plan:

Make sure your note answers any questions your instructor posed in the revision plan prompt. Some instructors reply to your revision plans, so make sure you know when to check back for your instructor’s feedback.

You can get specific instructions on how to build a revision plan in the Eli student user guide.
