Writing Assessment at the College Level. ERIC Digest.
Brand, Alice G.
This digest reviews writing assessment--what it means and how it works--at a selected number of colleges and universities in the United States. The digest discusses outcomes assessment, placement testing, placement and the writing process, and end-of-course evaluation. The digest concludes with a brief reminder for college-bound students of what writing specialists look for in determining writing skill: fluency or the amount written; quality and quantity of detail; complexity of ideas; organization; and correctness.
