Example use of the template which includes some commonly provided feedback comments:

|1=
<!-- Overall comments... -->
# Overall, this chapter...
# Overall, this is an excellent chapter that successfully uses psychological theory and research to help address a practical, real-world problem.
# Overall, this is a basic, but sufficient chapter.
# For additional feedback, see [ these copyedits].
|2=
<!-- Theory comments... -->
# Theories are well described and explained.
# Basic but sufficient coverage of theory involving the relation between the target constructs is provided.
# There is too much general theoretical material about emotion. Instead, summarise and link to further information, to allow this chapter to focus on the specific topic.
# The Reeve (2015) textbook is overused as a citation - instead, utilise primary, peer-reviewed sources.

<!-- Research comments... -->
# Basic but sufficient coverage of research involving the relation between the target constructs is provided.
# When describing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
# Greater emphasis on major reviews and meta-analyses would be helpful.
# Some statements are unreferenced - see the {{fact}} tags

# Written expression
## The chapter benefited from a well developed Overview and Conclusion, with clear focus question(s) and take-home messages.
## The chapter would benefit from a more developed Overview and Conclusion, with clearer focus question(s) (Overview) and take-home self-help message for each focus question (Conclusion).
## Write for an international, not just Australian audience. [https://tradingeconomics.com/australia/population Australians make up only 0.33% of the world human population].
## Obtaining (earlier) comments on a chapter plan and/or chapter draft could have helped to improve the chapter.
## Some paragraphs are overly long. Each paragraph should communicate one key idea in three to five sentences.
## Some sentences are unnecessarily wordy - strive for the simplest expression of the point being made.
## Some sentences are overly long (e.g., *).
## Some statements could be explained more clearly - see the {{explain}} tags
## Some of the bullet-points should have been in full paragraph format.
## Avoid directional referencing (e.g., "As previously mentioned").
## Avoid one sentence paragraphs. A paragraph should typically consist of three to five sentences.
## Abbreviations (such as e.g., i.e.., etc.) should only be used inside parentheses.
## Use abbreviations sparingly. Do not use abbreviations for minor terms that aren't used very much in the chapter.
## Avoid starting sentences with a citation unless the author is particularly pertinent. Instead, it is more interesting for the the content/key point to be communicated, with the citation included along the way or, more typically, in brackets at the end of the sentence.
# Layout
## The chapter was well structured, with major sections using sub-sections.
## Sections which include sub-sections should also include an introductory paragraph (which doesn't need a separate heading) before branching into the sub-headings.
## Avoid having sections with only one sub-sections.
## See earlier comments about [[#Heading casing|heading casing]].
# Learning features
## [[m:Help:Interwiki linking|Interwiki links]] are well used.
## Adding [[m:Help:Interwiki linking|interwiki links]] for the first mention of key words would make the text more interactive.
## Use in-text [[m:Help:Interwiki linking|interwiki links]], rather than external links.
## Basic use of images.
## Basic use of tables.
## Basic use of quizzes.
## Basic use of case studies.
# Spelling, grammar, and proofreading.
## Spelling can be improved (e.g., see the {{spelling}} tags).
## The grammar for some sentences could be improved (e.g., see the {{grammar}} tags).
## More proofreading is needed to fix typos and bring the quality of written expression closer to a professional standard.
## Use Australian spelling (e.g., hypothesize vs. hypothesise; behavior vs. behaviour).
## Check and correct use of ownership apostrophes (e.g., individuals vs. individual's).
## Check and correct use of commas.
## Check and correct use of [https://www.google.com.au/search?q=grammar+that+vs+who&oq=grammar+that+vs+who&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.5843j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 that vs. who].
## Check and correct use of [https://www.google.com.au/search?q=affect+vs.+effect+grammar&oq=affect+vs.+effect+grammar&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.5132j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 affect vs. effect].
# APA style
## Use APA style for Figure captions.
## Provide more detailed Figure captions to help connect the figure to the text.
## Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numbers (e.g., 10).
## Direct quotes need page numbers.
## Citations
### In-text citations should be in alphabetical order.
### When there are three or more authors, subsequent citations should use et al. e.g., Smith, Bush and Western (2001) and thereafter cite Smith et al. (2001).
### A full stop is needed after et al.
### Use ampersand (&) inside brackets and "and" outside brackets.
### A comma is needed before "&" for citations involving three or more authors.
### Check and correct use of [http://research.moreheadstate.edu/c.php?g=107001&p=695202 citations for sources with six or more authors].
## References are not in full APA style e.g.,
### Check and correct capitalisation.
### Check and correct italicisation.
### Add spaces between author initials.
### See [http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2014/07/how-to-use-the-new-doi-format-in-apa-style.html new doi format].
### Do not include issue numbers for journals which are continuously numbered within volumes.
