Using Correction Codes: Saving your students from going down with their 'slips' in a sea of red ink! | ELT Vista:

"A good step towards raising awareness in students of the important of facilitating appropriate “effect on the reader” is by making the most of another type of mistake, or as some humanistic practitioners would say, learning opportunities. What I’m referring to is basic sentence level correction. The idea is that getting students to become more reflective of how their sentence level mistakes might affect readers actually creates a need for students to more accurately express themselves in an effective way. After all, one conception about ‘sentence structure’ is that the most grammatically correct sentence is one that is also the most effective."
