Tips On How To Compose A Decent Critical Self-Evaluation Essay

When you are writing a critical self-evaluation essay, you should avoid the two extremities that are as follows:

  • An overly critical paper that demolishes your achievements and talents, making you look completely uninteresting and lacking inspiration,
  • An overly pompous paper that overestimates the importance of your achievements, abilities, skills, and other useful qualities.

Doing a critical self-evaluation essay, you should keep in mind the following helpful guidelines:

  1. Start with some organization.
  2. Have several sheets of paper that will be used to create a table of your achievements. You may need a lot of paper to create a table that will satisfy your demands completely. Create a column that will contain your achievements. Add another column that lists the most successful activities you have done. In the third column, name your contribution (what you have done to reach success with those projects). In the fourth one, name the your manager’s reaction to your actions. This systematization will help you create a picture of your most successful activities along with their results.

  3. Put the table into words.
  4. When you’re done with the columns, create one or several paragraphs that will describe the things from the table. Give each separate idea a separate paragraph. Keep in mind your choice of words: use words that allow you to compile all the information together and connect paragraphs.

  5. Show that you are open to new opportunities.
  6. No matter what you have already written, you need to remember that your essay is meant to show that you are eager to learn new things, move forward and achieve new goals. However, remember you need to create a true-to-life paper that will give your personality an honest evaluation.

  7. Intensify a thought by making it more specific.
  8. Apart from vaguely showing that you are willing to learn more in a different sphere, you should also show that you are interested in learning something new right now, and you are sure about what this new thing should be. If there is a skill you want to master in the near future, give this thought a separate paragraph.

  9. Remember your grammar.
  10. When writing academic projects, always keep the grammar in mind. After you are through with a draft, give it a thorough checking to detect typos, spelling mistakes, poor grammar, useless or incorrect sentences, etc. At best, you should have your paper read by somebody else, like your parents, friends, or even your teacher.
