Table 12: The FAVORS Analysis Checklist

Once you 1) have endured the process of understanding what you are doing (i.e., exploring, evaluating, explaining, persuading, convincing, describing, etc.), 2) have developed a pre-analysis thesis and topic sentences, and 3) have structured your body paragraphs, you must do one last thing before submitting the final paper to your professor.

You must perform a quality check of your analysis by using An, Aly, and Sis of The FAVORS Analysis Checklist.

Table 12: The FAVORS Analysis Checklist provides insight into the process of evaluating your analysis. This will help you perform the tasks that fall under the “Analysis Revision Tasks” category.
