Selected RW Comments on Karen S. Boyd draft of “Olie, Olie, Oxen Free: Is school a safe place for high school students?” April 8, 2002 [NOTE: Karen has graciously agreed that I can post her paper along with some of the comments I made on it] While you still need to do a lot of work, this is a far better written paper than most of the drafts. You know how to lay things out in a clear and professional matter. (The fact that these comments are relatively long reflects the fact that your paper is clear enough for me to offer specific suggestions, not that you’ve done more things wrong than other people have.). Things I especially like: You describe the data set. A lot of people just say they are using the GSS, without even explaining what GSS stands for. You could make your description a little better by pointing out what makes the NELS the best, or at least a good, data set for this problem. Also, any weaknesses of NELS for your purposes could be noted. Nice, clear descriptions of most of the variables.
