Evans, Peter J. A.
This condensation of an original report of the same title describes an analysis and comparison of writing performances of students in two studies: grade 8 students in the 1977 Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) Intermediate Evaluation Project and grade 12 and 13 students in the Interface Study, 1976. The chapters give the purposes of the study, discuss the evaluation of writing in the Interface Study and in the OISE Intermediate Evaluation Project, describe writing performances at each of the grade levels studied, describe the development in writing ability of students from grades 8 through 12, and describe a program for writing evaluation within a school system. The report concludes with a chapter that describes a writing evaluation program for a school or system at the intermediate or senior level. An appendix includes some examples of student writing with comments from an evaluator. (TJ)
