Hello Everyone,

I'm putting together a business writing course for undergraduates and
wanted to survey the professional community about rubrics, or criteria
lists, for various business and technical writing assignments. I
figure that since you are all professionally experienced, you might
have good insight into what you'd like to see from new
technical/business writers.

To ask it another way, what are the most common mistakes or problems
you see from new writers in the workplace? I can back those ideas into
criteria for assignments.

I want to stay in touch with the professional world as I move forward
in this class.

Thanks,

Rob
