Dear Yael and Tamar,

This comment is very tardy, so apologies if you have already revised your draft. However, I'll include it here all the same...

This chapter reports on a solid body of research into the development of expertise in design and as such has a strong authoritative feel. My main concern is that it is very long, and I hope that by this time the authors have managed to reduce it to the publisher's maximum of 6,000 words - which I feel could be achieved largely by deleting less necessary detail. In terms of content and approach, I would like a reference to a description of the how the MODA rubric on which the assessment of the students' performance hinges was developed. The chapter expects us to take it on trust - but also refers to successive versions of the rubric. What were the reasons why it was felt necessary to modify it?
