Writing Assessment Alternative for the '80s.
Anderson, Beverly L.
This paper provides a brief overview of three direct measures of writing assessment--holistic, analytic, and primary trait scoring--and several variations and combinations of the three. It then relates these measures to eight types of educational decisions: (1) diagnosis of individual learner strengths and weaknesses, (2) student placement, (3) educational and vocational student guidance, (4) selection for admission to programs with enrollment limits, (5) certification of minimum competencies, (6) survey assessment, (7) formative program evaluation, and (8) summative program evaluation.
