I have to give the following feedback to this paragraph: (Evaluative, Interpretive, Supportive, Probing and Understanding). I don't know how to start or if I have to use all the 5 types of feedback. This is the paragraph I have to read and give feedback on:

The fear of using computer stems from several reasons. Most people don't understand exactly how computers work. This lack of understanding will create tension and ultimately lead to fear. The constantly changing computer technology causes computer users to continually learn and adapt new skill sets. Most people feel overwhelmed because knowledge they learned once now isn't enough-tomorrow’s knowledge may be different and may even require "unlearning" how to perform once-proficient tasks. Additionally, workers are afraid of being replaced by a computer. Less and less human intervention does indeed push many workers out of their jobs. People not only wonder if they have a job or not; they don't know if they could find a job if out of work. Fear of computer is primarily fear of the unknown.

This is my feedback not sure if it's right or not: The writer has a good start. However, I feel there could have been more information supporting the why people don't understand computer; whey they are fearful of learning new technology.

    You wrote - I have to give the following feedback to this paragraph: (Evaluative, Interpretive, Supportive, Probing and Understanding). I don't know how to start or if I have to use all the 5 types of feedback.

    I don't know either. If you'd post your exact instructions (no need to repost the paragraph), I might be able to tell.

    The instructions are: From the piece of writing which follows, write at lest one complete sentence of feedback in each of the five types described in this section: Evaluative, Interpretive, Supportive, Probing, and Understanding. Label each of your five sentences with the feedback type.

    OK, good. Tell me which of your sentences fits each of the following categories --

    Evaluative:

    Interpretive:

    Supportive:

    Probing:

    Understanding:

    Evaluative: The fear of using computers stems from several reasons.

    Interpretive:

    Supportive: lack of understanding will create tension and ultimately lead to fear.

    Probing:

    Understanding: Fear of computers is primarily fear of the unknown.

    Please re-read the instructions:
    ...write at least one complete sentence of feedback in each of the five types...

    Each sentence needs to be sentences YOU WRITE about that paragraph, not sentences from the paragraph.

    Are you crystal clear on what each of those terms means? Look each one up here: http://www.answers.com or http://www.onelook.com

    Evaluative and Interpretive: The writer has a good start. However, I feel there could have been more information supporting why people don't understand computers and why they are fearful of learning new technology.

    Write five sentences -- one for each of the following categories --


    Evaluative:

    Interpretive:

    Supportive:

    Probing:

    Understanding:

    Thank you for helping me better understand this assignment.

    I just wanted to know if I was on the right track with what I already wrote. I understand that I have to write one for each category.

    Here are a couple of ideas:

    SUPPORTIVE: The writer has a good start.

    EVALUATIVE: However, I feel there could have been more information supporting why people don't understand computers and why they are fearful of learning new technology.

    Now you just need 3 more.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I just needed to know I was going in the right direction.

    You're welcome. Keep writing!
