CompleteMS Assessor Evaluation form
Thank you for the time and effort that you have put into this assessment. Now that you have completed this manuscript assessment, we need you to fill out an evaluation based on the following questions.
Once you have completed and submitted your evaluation, please email your invoice through so that we can make payment to you.
1. Was the MS presented in the required manner? If no, what else needed to be done?
2. Was the 2-month period long enough to complete this assessment? If no, what would have been a more realistic timeframe?
3. Was the payment offered appropriate for the work? If no, what would have been a more appropriate fee?
4. Were the assessment guidelines realistic? If no, what would you suggest to improve them?
5. If you felt the quality of the manuscript you were sent was too low - do you have any recommendations on how we might improve the selection process?
6. What were the key issues that you needed to focus on with this manuscript?
7. Did your writer use the Q&A session? If yes, did the session offer an opportunity to clarify and / or enhance your MS assessment?
8. How close is the work to being publishable, in your opinion?
9. What is your general feeling on the value of this programme for writers?
10. Would you like to offer some thoughts on anything more the NZSA can do to support you as an assessor?
Thank you for your feedback. Your feedback helps us to review and improve the programme on an ongoing basis. Feedback is also used as part of our report back to Creative New Zealand.
