Writing Center Tutorial Record Form (WCTRF).
Reigstad, Tom; And Others
Designed to describe and assess the activities engaged in between a writing tutor and a student in a one-to-one writing conference, this survey contains two forms. The first records the student's major, native language, source of the writing task with which he or she needs help, and the student's perception of the problem. The second form, filled out by the tutor immediately after the conference, records specific information about the activities during the conference. This information can be entered onto computer score sheets, and after several such record forms have been collected and analyzed, profiles of student writers and conferencing activities can be drawn up. Validity, reliability and normative data are included. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (writing), title, author, date, age range (secondary through postsecondary and adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
