The article I read was announcing that the council was erecting two smoking shelters outside County Hall.

The judgment is the establishment of whether or not the criterion is met. Using the example from above, if the first criterion for evaluating a restaurant is the quality of the food, the judgment states whether or not the particular restaurant offers food that meets or exceeds this stated quality.
Instead, the evaluation should seem reasoned and unbiased.
The key to making this happen, and therefore the key to a good investigative essay, is establishing clear and fair criteria, judgments and evidence.A life lesson I learned the hard way was, the more people know about you the more they can harm you.Not to say that anything I share in this paper will be used against me but I have become very sceptical about sharing personal information.The article interested me and I searched the council website for more details about this topic....[tags: Papers] - Authentic assessment can be referred to as assessment tasks that epitomise actual reading and writing in school and in the real world.While all three are very different in terms of concepts, rituals, and conducts, they all come together to one common goal - helping students express themselves in terms of writing....

For an evaluation essay, this thesis is the overall evaluation of whatever is being evaluated.
