As members of the academic community and bearer of the society progress, students should beware of their written expression, primarily because theycultivate their language expression and contribute for protecting and strengthening the stability of the language norm.

Yet they have relevant role in forming the text according to the orthographic norm. Thus, the paper examines the use of the punctual and orthographic mark colon.

The sample consist ofwritten texts that refer to the colon in the Curriculum and the Textbooks for teaching the Macedonian language from first to ninth grade of the primary school and texts from first to fourth year of the secondary vocational and gymnasium education. The sample also comprises 100 written texts from students from first to fourth year that are studying on the Faculty of Education in Bitola.
