Using acronyms for commenting in assessments

When marking tests, cycle tests or exams, I make use of acronyms that I explain to my students afterwards. It helps me to be able to make comments in an abbreviated way so I can keep track of their understanding and it’s a time saver for me when going through many papers at a time. I don’t like to have too many, so these are the basic ones I use the most and consistently in most of my marking.
