WELL, SO that I don't have to write a whole page of feedback for each kid, I use a rubric that clearly defines my expectations. There are 4 catergories that switch with five possible scores for each. IE Creativity (student uses their own ideas and imagery 80-100% of the time.... student uses their own ideas and imagery 60;79% of the time.... and so on.) I circle which one best exemplifies their project. This way they know they specifically got points off for creativity, work ethic, technical abililty etc. I sometimes add a quick note at the bottom, but the rubric relly helps slim down on the time grading, while giving them feedback.

That's that! I try to keep it personal, semi professional, but casual enough so the kids can read it and appreciate the comment. I do occasionally follow up a positive with a 'negative' comment such as
-___could benefit from listening more carefully during demonstrations
