Composition Rating Scale.
Smith, Vernon H.
Designed to assess consistency in teacher judgment of student essays and to assess conformity of teacher judgment with expert judgment, the Composition Rating Scale (CRS) requires the taker to rank-order five brief compositions. Requiring twenty minutes to complete, the scale can be used to evaluate the consistency of teacher judgments of compositions, to screen lay-composition readers, or to prepare student teachers. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be 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. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Teacher Competency), title, author, and date, and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
