Teaching and Evaluating Student Writing (Elementary Grades). British Columbia Assessment of Written Expression, 1978.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria.
This resource package has been prepared as a means for distributing not only the results of the 1978 British Columbia Assessment of Written Expression but also to provide educators with clear, well-organized, classroom-ready materials which will assist them in teaching and evaluating the skills of written expression. It contains all of the test exercises from the provincial assessments, together with marking scales, provincial results, and further suggestions for teaching and evaluating each writing skill. The assessment was conducted at the grades 4 and 8 levels. However, since many teachers have reported that the exercises and scales could easily be used at, or adapted for, other grade levels, the exercises have been keyed throughout the package: all exercises, scales, and sample papers for the grade 4 level were keyed as "EXERCISE 1"; at the Grade 8 level they were keyed "EXERCISE 2". The exercises utilize the re-emerging assumptions that the English/Language Arts program should be based on the competencies actually required in adult life and that these skills can be specifically taught, learned, and measured.
