The most important day for each student isthe day of defense of the thesis. In addition to the final work, defensive speech and presentation, the student will need a review, which can be prepared by his supervisor, the director of the enterprise where the student was practicing, or even the student himself. This material describes the basic requirements for writing reviews, as well as examples of writing reviews for the thesis.
Review of the thesis (coursework or anyanother qualifying work) is a mandatory official document in which the reviewer leaves a review of what has been read. This document is necessary in order to allow the student to be protected. It includes many aspects. A worthy example of a review of the thesis work is the one in which, in addition to the final assessment, there is a summary of the work and its analysis. Immediately the reviewer examines all the shortcomings, mistakes and remarks, describing them in the most detailed and objective manner. It is important to understand that a lot depends on the review. Often it is this document that is decisive at the time of the student's assessment. A good review makes a good impression on the admissions committee, which ultimately can play into the hands of those who worked on the thesis project.
Who is the reviewer?
Naturally, to check and evaluate the projectthe student should not be a man from the street, but a professional in the topic to which the thesis is devoted. The reviewer is a graduate who can objectively and impartially evaluate the student's work. Ideally, this should be done by the most independent person from outside, whose decision can not be affected by personal perception and relationship with the author of the work. Usually, the director of an enterprise or organization is engaged in this, where the student passed the practice. In this case, the review is made on a special document of the organization. The reviewer should fully own the topic, understand all aspects of the work, correctly describe all the pros and cons. Among other things, the document itself must be properly drawn up. There must be confirmation in the form of a seal and the signature of the head (without this the review will be void). Very often the directors of enterprises and teachers ask the student to write and arrange the document independently, and the teacher has only to put a seal and a signature. If such a practice is available, then each student should be prepared to write a review independently. To do this, you need to get acquainted with good examples of writing a review and detailed instructions for its design.
How to write a review? With an example of finished work, of course, and on established, generally accepted points. Special problems with the main part of the review should not arise. A student is better than anyone, he knows all the advantages and disadvantages of his thesis work and can most competently describe them.
The following important job requirements should be taken into account, which are checked and described in the review:
- the completeness of the material;
- registration in accordance with the requirements of GOST.
For convenience of perception, the review can be divided into three main elements:
- Introduction, where the reviewer will describe the relevance of the topic.
- The main part, where the aspects of work, advantages and disadvantages are considered more scrupulously (the largest part).
- Conclusion, where the main conclusion is drawn (includes the mark and verdict of the teacher about whether the student is allowed to defend or not).
It is better to avoid common phrases and different cliches. The review should be more specific and less water.
Here everything is as simple as possible. On the Internet, there are many examples of reviews of works of artistic nature and other similar work with a specific design, but when it comes to a diploma, everything should be as ascetic as possible.
In the upper part the word "Review" is written, then the topic of the work, the position and the full name. author.
For example, "Review of the article" The use of modern IT-technologies in teaching the French language "candidate of pedagogical sciences, assistant professor of the Department of Foreign Languages of the Moscow State University Olga Petrovna's Song."
Assessment of scientific novelty and relevance
Any scientific work is based on these twoaspects, and they are the most important for the student's work. Relevance can be the use of new techniques, the development of a unique set of measures to eliminate existing problems in the field of activity, which is considered in the thesis, or a fresh look at the usual things. One way or another, this moment should be described in the work itself and reflected in the review of it. If you are personally engaged in a review, then in order to simplify your task, you can find this item in your final project and, paraphrasing it, make it a review. Concerning the relevance and novelty, it is enough to write 2-3 sentences.
Brief analysis of the content
Examples of reviews of benefits and different types of workdiffer considerably. A brief analysis is another important point in which the main idea of the whole project will be deduced. What was the essence of the work, what was its purpose and what results the author planned to achieve. Immediately it is necessary to fit information about whether the goal set by the author was achieved, what ideas were implemented during the research.
For example, the author carried out serious workon the study of the possibilities of using modern IT-technologies in teaching the French language. New learning tools have been proposed that help develop the skills of reading, speaking, listening and writing. The goal - to create a set of exercises using modern technologies was achieved.
Benefits of work
There are many examples of reviews of programsresearch and diploma work from teachers and directors of various enterprises, where this item is described quite dryly, since the reviewer was not particularly enthusiastic about the project. If the student has to write his own review, he gets an opportunity to praise himself properly, describing the positive aspects of his research and its advantages in all its glory. The main thing is not to overdo it, otherwise you will only achieve that the commission will fill you with questions on protection and create many problems.
Disadvantages of course work or diploma
And here the difficulties may begin. In fact, who would want to slander and reflect any shortcomings of his own project? It still has to be done. Objectively describe the problems and shortcomings are unlikely to succeed. It is better to rely on those flaws that were identified by your supervisor. Ask the scientific supervisor or the head of the practice, who, if not they, is best aware of the shortcomings of your qualification work?
The main thing, feel the line and do not write about yourself superfluous. Too critical attitude towards oneself can lead to a deadlock and at all to deny the opportunity to speak at the defense.
Practical value of the study
If you look at the examples of writing reviewsto the degree work, it is unlikely to find there this item. Usually the practical value of the study is indicated only if it is a question of a candidate's work or a dissertation. Nevertheless, if there is such an item in your project, then this must necessarily be said. Of course, it is not enough to indicate the availability of practical value, the reviewer is obliged to express his position and say what exactly the work done can be useful.
The evaluation of the work should be general and private. This means that the reviewer should fully appreciate all the work and every separate chapter.
The overall assessment includes such points asthe correct design and proportionality of each chapter and paragraph, the consistency of the material, the availability of competently constructed conclusions for each part. The presence of professional terms, applications, images, tables, histograms and other visual accents.
The first chapter evaluates how the author of the workprovides information, compliance with the scientific style of presentation, the overall level of literacy. The author's ability to clearly formulate an idea and convey his opinion on the topic under study.
The second chapter assesses how deepthe topic was studied, how much qualitative analysis was carried out by the author, what conclusions were drawn as a result. All the activities of the student in collecting and processing information from sources, statistics, interpretation of the data obtained are described in this paragraph.
The third chapter describes the possibility ofThe practical application of those recommendations that the student gives in his work. Ideas that were implemented in the course of pre-diploma practice. Specific proposals and ready-made options for their use in real life and work. This part can be inscribed in the second chapter, if it is practical.
Design of a review
If you look at examples of reviews for course or diploma work, it becomes clear that visually they are formalized in the same way as the diploma or course paper itself. Requirements:
- font - Times New Roman;
- the font size is 14 points;
- page margins - 2 centimeters;
- headers and footers - the page number in the center at the bottom.
How to write a review? The easiest way to do this is to rely on a specific job. Below, one sample will be proposed, on which one can be guided.
