Sager Writing Scale.
Sager, Carol
Designed to assess the quality of pieces of creative writing in the intermediate and junior high grades, the Sager Writing Scale (SWS) is intended for use by both students and teachers or by researchers. The SWS contains four scales with four ratings possible in the areas of vocabulary, elaboration, organization, and structure. Validity for the SWS is claimed for its being based on an examination of what experts have said about children's writing and an examination of over a thousand pieces of children's writing. Reliability for three adults trained as raters was .97.

A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Writing), title, author, date, and age range, (intermediate, junior high), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
