Criteria for Written Evaluation
The following are considered spelling errors:
All misuses of the apostrophe, each time that the apostrophe is misused in a different word being another error. All misused homonyms (words sounding alike, but having different spellings and different meanings, such as to, too, two; their, there, they''e; your, you're; past, passed); but not words similar in sound and spelling, such as affect for effect, loose for lose. The failure to distinguish between combinations spelled as two words (any time, a lot), combinations spelled as single words (sometimes), and hyphenated words (re-educate, good-natured friend). Incorrect plural endings of nouns.
- Superior (5): No words misspelled.
- High (4): One word misspelled.
- Middle (3): Two or three words misspelled.
- Low (2): Four words misspelled.
- Unacceptable (1): Five or more words misspelled.

- Middle (3): Characteristics of middle skill in punctuation is a general following of the conventions with some minor inconsistencies for no apparent purpose.
Also characteristic is an occasional error, such as omitting one half of the pair of marks needed to set off a free modifier or failing to distinguish between free and bound modifiers.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
This study is being conducted to learn more about the
potential uses of the Internet in improving language and literacy
skills. This study will include maintaining a dialogue journal
using electronic mail (e-mail) to send messages back and forth
with the intern. Messages will concern topics such as academics
and social activities. The messages will be read and returned two
to three times each week. These messages will need to be printed
out in order to record and report the results accurately.
Participation in this study is voluntary, and you may choose to
withdraw at any time.
Information will be kept confidential. All students will be
given a pseudonym (a false name) for use in printed transcripts,
and in the reporting of the results of the study. In addition,
members of a Master's committee, and a group of peers will have
access to the transcripts in an effort to help determine the
accuracy of my results. Each of these people will sign a
statement of confidentiality. Printed transcripts will be kept in
a locked file at the University of Tennessee until completion of
the study, at which time they will be thrown out.
There is no risk involved in this study except for that your identity may be known. No grade will be given for your child's participation in the study. You are under no obligation to complete the study and may withdraw at any time.
Participation in this study will help increase the research
already being done about the potential benefits of dialogue
journals. Specifically. this study may help [to learn the
benefits dialogue journals may have for deaf and hard of hearing
students in increasing language and literacy skills.
I have read and understand the procedures and potential
risks involved in my role and I agree to participate in the
