guidelines to keep in mind when preparing oral and written evaluations

your comments, while the oral one should pinpoint only the essential.
Please save points marked with a star for your written evaluations.
Other issues, marked with a #, would be good to address in your oral evaluation,
or you might want to raise some issues not mentioned here. Use your
judgement and make your commentary interesting.

no pictures, includes at least a title, the composition teacher's
name, and the date.
