An online teacher told me that she had used red script, i.e. “red pencil” when she commented on her students’ work. She provided long and detailed comments, also when they had given good answers. One of the students was very confused, as she had received top marks for her answer. “This must be a mistake,” she said, “there are lots of red marks here.” Following this, the teacher never used red script again.
