Schroeder Composition Scale.
Schroeder, Thomas S.
Designed to describe the writing behaviors of elementary and junior high school children, the Schroeder Composition Scale is an analytic scale. For eleven of the criteria in the scale, the scoring is simply "yes" or "no" indicating whether the writing does or does not have the characteristic. Five other items identify percentages of communication units with specific characteristics, and two final items concern total word count and words per communication unit. The agreement between two trained raters on each of the separate items in the scale ranged from 67 percent to 100 percent. [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 (Writing), title, author, date, and age range (primary--junior high), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
