Theoretical and Empirical Comparisons of Holistic and Analytic Scoring of Written and Spoken Discourse.
Goulden, Nancy Rost
Since speech communication evaluators are beginning to adapt the analytic and holistic instruments and methods used for rating written products to oral products and performance, this research review investigated: (1) what the labels "analytic" and "holistic" mean; (2) the theoretical bases of the two scoring approaches; and (3) the rather limited experimental studies both in written and oral discourse which compare the two methods of using rating scales. The paper's six sections are as follows: (1) Understanding the Terms; (2) Use of Terms in Writing and Speaking Literature; (3) Theoretical Bases for Holistic and Analytical Scoring; (4) Holistic and Analytic Scoring and Purpose of Evaluation; (5) Reliability and Validity of Holistic and Analytic Scoring; and (6) Empirical Studies of Reliability and Validity of Two Methods. Sixty-one references are attached. (SR)
