Abstract

Writing letters of recommendation (LoR) may qaulify as one of the most time-consuming and critical tasks performed by faculty, yet faculty rarely receive training or guidance as to how to craft a successful LoR (Range et al., 1991). The scholarship concerning LoR deals mostly with how letters are perceived and evaluated, and indirectly addresses writing LoR.
