I've come across a couple items in the review queue that were good edits, but they needed more.

Should I accept the edit using the Accept button, and then go and edit? Or should I use the Accept and Improve button for any and all edits I do, no matter how severe (as long as they do not change the edited content)?

If I should use the Accept and Improve method, is a drastic change okay? Or should I limit it to a few edits to the edit (like typos) and just make the rest of the edits myself?

    Generally it is pretty much up to the reviewer. If you think it's good enough just approve it. If it needs a lot of work reject and improve. If the editor missed a few things approve and improve.

As one goal of our edit reviews is to educate people to make better edits I tend to "accept and improve" only rather small omissions.

When someone suggests an edit where only the easy (spottable or doable) part has been done I rather use "reject and improve".
