After making all the changes that you decided upon in the editing stage, it is time to produce the final copy. Check to see you've addressed the types of changes suggested in previous assignments.

Check for margins, proper spacing and identification (name, title, name of instructor, course title, date).

It is wise to plan time for someone to read over your final copy to be sure that the spellchecker produced the correct word and that all the changes you wanted to make were included.

Evaluate how you approached each step of the task, and make plans for future endeavors.

Acknowledge the effort you have put into the work, and what you may have learned.
