VCSEwiki:Type of anotation


  • Defines the source scope, lists significant topics, and tells what the source is about; shorter than an informative annotation because it gives no actual information from the source (hypotheses, proofs)
  • max 1 point


  • Summarizes the source: beginning with the thesis, including the main arguements and proofs, ending with the conclusion
  • max 2 points


  • Assesses the value of the source, outlining its strengths and weaknesses
  • Max 3 points


  • The most commonly used annotation form. One or two sentences summarizing the content and one or two sentences evaluating the source.
  • Max 4 points
