Drawn from a California conference that brought together writing instructors and researchers, the papers in this compilation address problems in writing, policies affecting both writing instruction and assessment, and possibilities for improving both areas. Papers in the first section of the book represent positions of eight separate entities: (1) the public, (2) the media, (3) the California State University, (4) the University of California, (5) private colleges and universities, (6) community colleges, (7) public schools, and (8) the California Writing Projects. Papers in the second section focus in depth on specific topics in writing research, including methodologies used in research on the composing process, the writing problems of speakers of languages other than English, writing programs of professional and technical writers, remedial writing, and writing assessment.
