Manitoba Writing Assessment 1988. Franco-Manitoban Schools. Summary Report.
Maurice, Lucille; And Others
This summary report is the third of three reports (Preliminary, Final, and Summary) of the findings of 1988 Provincial Writing Assessment in Manitoba, Canada for grades 4, 8, and 11 of the Franco-Manitoban 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 Manitoba English Language Arts program--based on a writing process model--as it applies specifically to Francophone schools. The report describes briefly the 1988 Writing Assessment, construction and scoring, writing tasks, marking procedures, and the teacher questionnaire. It then reports results for grades 4, 8, and 11 separately for each grade level, and outlines recommendations. The report is one of a series of reports on writing assessment in regular English, French Immersion, and Franco-Manitoban programs. (SR)
