Assessing Writing Proficiencies with Writing Samples in Grades 2-6.
Humes, Ann
Three different scoring systems are described; these systems are widely used for evaluating students' writing samples. A new model for scoring is presented by comparing and contrasting that model with the other systems. A pilot study of the new model for writing-sample items, scoring keys, and scoring guidelines is discussed. The pilot study was conducted in grades 2-6, and results suggest that the new model is appropriate for evaluating writing-samples that are a part of competency tests. Data from large-scale use on competency tests is also presented. (Author)
