  • interpreting assignment prompts
  • constructing strong theses and arguments
  • grammar, punctuation, and syntax problems
  • analyzing and integrating sources
  • citing and referencing
  • interpreting assignment prompts
  • developing active reading habits

Students should note, however, that the WSD is not a proofreading service. Read WSD’s Policies and Procedures for further information.
