Marking books- giving targets

    A recent OFSTED report described an MFL department as giving 'excellent targets when marking the pupils' books'. I've always wondered whether the targets I give are constructive enough as well as being acessible for the pupils and stretching them to achieve their best. I get tired of always writing 'don't forget accents' or 'set your work out properly'. Can anyone give me some examples of targets they give when marking books?
    Your input would be greatly appreciated!

    I give myself a target of marking a set of books in under 5 minutes [​IMG] - ha just kidding I wish

    well you could try linking things into levels / GCSE grades - i.e. well done on including a / b and c but to reach the next level aim to include ...... more past tense / more future tense / more opinions / give reasons why you like things etc .... as well as all the obvious practical stuff like check spellings, accents, verb endings / past participles etc
