Manitoba Writing Assessment 1988. English Language Schools. Summary Report.
Layne, Winston; And Others
This summary report is the third of three reports (Preliminary, Final, and Summary) of the findings of the 1988 Provincial Writing Assessment in Manitoba, Canada for grades 4, 8, and 11 of English language schools. It contains a brief description of the study along with recommendations. The report notes that the 1988 Writing Assessment was the first attempt to evaluate the writing component of the Manitoba English Language Arts program--based on a writing process model--since its introduction into schools in 1983. The report describes briefly the 1988 Writing Assessment, the writing process model, construction and scoring, writing tasks, marking procedures, and the teacher questionnaire. It then provides results for grades 4, 8, and 11 separately for each grade level, after which a comparison of 1982 and 1988 student writing is made, and recommendations are outlined. The report is one of a series of reports on writing assessment in regular English, French Immersion, and Franco-Manitoban programs. Four tables of data are included. (SR)
