Large Scale Writing Assessment. ERIC Digest.
O'Donnell, Holly
Intended for administrators and policymakers as well as teachers, this digest explores approaches to, problems with, and trends in large scale writing assessment. The digest first compares direct and indirect assessment approaches, then examines three approaches to scoring: holistic, primary trait, and analytic. It then discusses issues and problems surrounding the reliability and validity of the scores generated by such assessment. Finally, the digest examines trends characterizing large scale writing assessment. (HTH)
